NEW YORK, June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Advertising Research Foundation (ARF) will hold their annual Audience Measurement conference in New York City on June 12-14—the place for original, relevant, and actionable advertising research. The conference provides a forum for industry leaders to share their latest audience research as well as network and solve the most urgent challenges moving forward.
"It's clear, in today's complex and dynamic world, no ONE is going to have all the answers," said CEO and President, Gayle Fuguitt. That's why this conference brings together top leaders to present, debate, and solve the toughest issues around research, measurement, media, and meaningful consumer connections. "Through original research, we are able to answer the questions every marketer and C-Suite executive is asking on ad spend and cross-platform. Armed with this knowledge, they can readily make impactful decisions that drive brand loyalty and sales."
As audiences are consuming more media than ever before, The ARF recognizes that it's crucial to understand content consumption behavior: what content consumers truly want, when they want it, through which media, and how they want to consume it. As Gayle Fuguitt explains, "We really have to get right back to the consumer and think about what makes their hearts beat faster. How can we as an industry appeal to the head and heart of the consumer and not just to their feet and purchase behavior."
The Audience Measurement conference will address these pressing issues in a comprehensive approach, covering many timely topics: attribution, addressability, ad fraud and blocking, increasing ROI, cross-platform measurement, sequencing, neuroscience, and much more.
More specifically, at Audience Measurement, industry leaders' insights will:
- Provide a plan to deliver an effective sequence for advertising messages across platforms. The critical next phase of the How Advertising Works research that was shared at The ARF's Re!Think will be unveiled: a roadmap for the optimal sequencing of messages across TV, mobile, and digital.
- Prove the efficacy of various neuroscientific methods to evaluate creative messages, which in turn can help optimize the impact of consumer's emotional connection to brands, and directly connect to ROI.
- Show how audiences' content consumption can be measured through different media to inform profitable ad spend allocation.
The conference brings together a diverse group of "crème de la crème" speakers from over 70 companies and organizations, including: Google, Facebook, Nielsen, Unilever, CBS, 360i, ESPN, Havas Media Group, and Kantar Media.
At Audience Measurement 2016, groundbreaking research findings will help galvanize new paths to growth, provoke stimulating debates, energize networking, and will forge a new intelligent view of the future.

The ARF will also be honoring the "King of Advertising" himself—Irwin Gotlieb, Chairman of GroupM—as the recipient of this year's prestigious Erwin Ephron Demystication Award.
