The maturation of data platforms and the growing availability of behavior and context data creates new opportunities for advertising. Real-time bidding (RTB) exchanges are enabling marketers to control their spending, and more refined programmatic campaigns can take personalization even further.

In this panel, top execs from The Weather Company, Rocket Fuel, Xaxis, and The Exchange Lab will discuss leveraging first and third-party data to provide agencies and marketers with new levels of scale and relevance. More on the panelists:
