For the second year running, New Digital Age will be taking a look to the future at its Foresight event!

In the week after the kids go back to school in England, we’ll be kicking off 2025 early with an event that aims to help senior decision makers from across media owners, media agencies, and brands to make the right strategic moves around digital advertising next year.

The full-day event on 12th September 2024 will explore four key topics: influencer marketing, programmatic, new media, and artificial intelligence (AI). Each of these topics will have a dedicated keynote followed by a panel, with the event top and tailed by insights from a pair of industry veterans.

_The Sessions

Session One – AI: Stop Getting It Wrong

AI has been the talk of the town for nearly two years, and this conversation is only going to continue into 2025. Businesses across sectors are trying to implement the technology to elevate them beyond their competitors, but so many continue to get it wrong.

This session will provide a deep dive into the best use cases for AI across digital advertising, and give decision makers the tools and knowledge they need to avoid any potential AI-related faux pas.

Session Two – Influencer Marketing: B2B, B2C, What Works For Me?

Influencer? Content creator? Whichever you prefer to call them; they will continue to have an “influential” role in any company’s strategy. But how can you ensure that you’re working with the right people who can authentically promote your brand?

Well, that’s just one of the questions this session will answer!

Session Three – Programmatic: The Next Level

With Google’s deprecation of third-party cookies postponed (again) until 2025, the future of programmatic advertising remains in a slight state of flux.

This session will explore how, even prior to the complete removal of third-party cookies, there is a huge opportunity for advertisers to take their programmatic strategies to “the next level” and be set for 2025 and beyond.

Session Four – New Media is Old Media: What’s Next?

So-called “new media” is far from being new anymore, so which channels should we be recognising as new media instead?

Experts will take a deep dive into the emerging channels that they expect to take the advertising world by storm in 2025, and explain why advertisers should be exploring these channels now.


Beginning with a welcome speech from NDA editor Justin Pearse before an over-arching keynote address from an industry legend opens the content proper.

Each topic will then have a dedicated keynote followed by a panel and the day will close with a fireside chat and roundup conversation between Justin and another veteran of the industry.
