The Collision of Law and Policy: What Lies Ahead for Advertisers and Marketers

Now in its 11th year, ANA's Advertising Law & Public Policy Conference is the industry's leading conference for anyone interested in the legal and political environment for advertising and marketing. This must-attend conference is for senior lawyers and business executives engaged in the marketing ecosystem. Come to hear from a slate of speakers from top law firms, leading marketers, and important regulators, who will discuss the latest developments you need to be aware of to navigate through the turbulent political and legal environment.

Venable is a proud sponsor and is pleased to feature our advertising law thought leaders during these sessions:

The Future in Ten Minutes or Less
Tuesday, March 31 at 8:30 am

Join a panel of the top lawyers in the business in a whirlwind tour of what advertising law will be in ten years. What does the future hold for advertising counsel? Is the commercial dead and content king? Is privacy a myth? Is there anything that isn't an app? Hear from the seers about the changed world awaiting us all.

Data Security - What's Next?
Tuesday, March 31 at 11:30 am

Our panel will discuss the evolution of data breach and security litigation in the class action and enforcement arenas and identify new privacy litigation risks appearing on the horizon as a result of recent experiences with security breaches at Sony Pictures, major retailers, and leading financial institutions. In addition to federal agency responses, state legislatures are enacting a patchwork of laws and regulations that present compliance and litigation challenges for merchants in every field. You will gain valuable insights about the interplay between government agency enforcement and private class action litigation and alternative approaches to mitigate enforcement and litigation risks both before and after a data breach.
