Upfront / NewFront Impact Report

Historically, the relationships forged and furthered at Upfront and NewFront events resulted in measurable results for media companies. COVID-19 and subsequent quarantine policies forced media companies to pivot their approach and explore new ways of engaging with advertisers. The Upfront / NewFront Impact Report continues to track Upfront investment, presentation attendance and advertiser perceptions of those presentations in addition to advertiser attitudes toward the future of the Upfronts, quality of virtual events vs. in person and the preferred event calendar moving forward. Clients receive actionable critiques, insights and advice for improving the effectiveness of future presentations.
