eSage Group’s L.A. Marketing Analytics Group is excited to present Mark Osborne, Marketing Services at Neustar. Join us on Thursday, 2/13 in West LA at the Neustar’s office to hear Mark present “Cookie-pocalypse! The Future of Customer Data.”

Summary: On January 14th Google announced they will be phasing out all third party cookies by 2022. Third party cookies have been a vital part of data-driven marketing and digital ad targeting for years, but no more as Apple, Google and others are taking steps to align with privacy concerns and new regulations. We’ll explore what this means for marketing analytics and customer insight, explore how leading marketers are responding, and identify actionable best practices and next steps you can take today to ensure your company has a sustainable customer data strategy in place in the face of regulation and change. Neustar believes that decline of the cookie is actually a positive step forward towards a truly identity-centric marketing ecosystem. We believe this announcement will accelerate the strategic development of offline identity-based marketing technology across the ecosystem placing those marketers who adapt and adhere to this new approach in a position of leadership and differentiation against their competitors. Attendees will leave with an understanding of what’s happening, what it means, and what they should do to prepare and respond.
