Driving an Innovation Agenda

Feb 14-16, 2023. The event is invite only and tickets are $2500

What can you do when outside forces distress your systems, teams, and bottom line? Fortify the frameworks that provide stability for your team, and cultivate a culture of innovation to remain competitive or even break through and level up. Celebrate the opportunity to move in more profitable directions, rather than allowing old systems to hold you back.

Kochava Summit 2023 will be an exploration of economic, regulatory and cultural trends impacting us all, and a reminder that the digital advertising industry and its people are uniquely capable of invention and innovation. We’ll look at both organizational and ad-tech trends and share how you can tap into next-generation technology and systems to move ahead.
