Are you maximizing your company’s digital advertising use?

In an age where social media advertising is at an uptick, companies are developing more unique methods to market their products in innovative and creative ways. In turn, they are rewarded with high brand loyalty and consumer satisfaction, but are then faced with increasing federal scrutiny from various agencies, including the FTC, for their advertising practices on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and other forms of social media. The American Conference Institute’s third annual summit on Digital Advertising Compliance: Social Media, Sweepstakes & Promotions, taking place in New York City from September 8-10, 2014, will provide an exclusive opportunity to hear from industry insiders on successfully implementing various forms of social media platforms as an integral part of their digital advertising strategy, while minimizing exposure to legal risks and bad publicity.

Gain insights from over 25 leading companies on the best practices and compliance strategies for your digital advertising policies.

As consumers’ use of social media evolves, find out how to comply with the FTC’s latest updates on social media use, including mobile privacy concerns, native advertisements, initiating hashtag campaigns, and advertising to children. Hear directly from the knowledgeable professionals who manage these concerns every day on how you can avoid regulatory scrutiny and noncompliance with newly issued guidelines.

Furthermore, as smartphone use becomes more prevalent than ever, even among children and minors, companies face greater challenges in their geolocation-based advertising practices, developing mobile apps, and other privacy concerns inherent with mobile devices. At this annual event, you will fi nd out out how the leading practitioners develop their strategies given these constraints in an ever-changing legal and technological landscape.
