SXSW 2020

Operating in a Cookie-Less World


As the digital industry becomes increasingly complex, and data ownership and privacy practices face more regulatory scrutiny, today’s marketers are now tasked with externally delivering personalized messaging while improving performance and upholding privacy compliance. With advertisers also facing walled gardens and losing access to third-party data, they will have to learn how to successfully operate in a cookie-less world. This panel will explore how operating in a cookie-less world can be done but it will not be a one-model fits all approach. Brands will have to take a leap of faith and adopt non-traditional strategies in order to succeed in a world without cookies.
