AI, attention metrics and hyper-personalization — these are just some of the themes that attendees unpacked at CES 2024, where DV joined thousands of like-minded industry professionals to discuss the latest innovations reshaping the advertising industry. 



The future of advertising is… disruptive! We had another exciting and motivating experience at CES 2024, where 135,000 attendees came from around the globe, including the pioneers responsible for transforming the advertising space. DV took part in discussing the most recent tech trends, such as artificial intelligence (AI), attention measurement and third-party cookie deprecation. As always, we left CES inspired and ready to get to work. Read on for this year’s highlights.

DV CMO’s Top 3 Takeaways of CES 2024

With more than a thousand speakers across over 250 sessions showcasing the latest tech innovations and announcements, DV’s CMO Dan Slivjanovski outlined his top three takeaways to apply to your media planning and strategy.

#1: We Can Work Smarter with Hyper-Personalization 

With the looming specter of a cookieless future, advertisers need to adapt. Consumers still expect to see relevant ads and brands continue to strive for meaningful connections with their audiences. CES speakers and attendees talked about the emerging state of data sharing and how that relates to customized consumer experiences. To prepare for an advertising world void of third-party data, advertisers must maintain focus on hyper-personalization fueled by strong first-party data sets. 

#2: The Most Powerful Vowels in Tech Are: AI

AI dominated the conference halls as industry leaders discussed its transformative potential. Groups delved into how AI-powered algorithms and machine learning are reshaping personalized marketing approaches. Conversations centered around leveraging AI technology to supplement creativity, boost efficiency, combat emerging quality issues and power superior performance.    

#3: Attention Measurement Is Here to Stay 

Attention measurement, which has sparked widespread discussion yet remains largely misunderstood, is at the forefront of digital advertising. Brands are leaning in more than ever to understand how to measure and capture attention while connecting consumer engagement metrics to tangible advertising outcomes. This will be a watershed year for defining standards for this exciting new measurement and activation concept.
