--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SymphonyIRI Group:


Phil Ripperger - Vice President of Sales, New Media Solutions, SymphonyIRI Group, Inc.


Phil Ripperger will be a featured panel moderator at the IAB Social Media Day event, "Planning for Real Time." He will lead a discussion with executives from leading health and beauty brands, including Unilever, BabyCenter and Everyday Health, on the tools and insights that can help drive social effectiveness in the consumer packaged goods industry.


IAB Social Media Agency Day seeks to focus on the importance of keeping up-to-speed with the fast-paced digital world. With the widely known Super Bowl Twitter post by Oreo®/Digital Agency 360i and the 2012 Presidential election (e.g. "Binders full of women" and Big Bird) as prime examples, enhanced targeting and instantaneous results have influenced media planning greatly.

At this event, leading brands, media and technology partners will share examples of social analytics and highlight case studies that have impacted real-time marketing practices. The audience will gain additional insights on the speed of the digital culture via topical discussions covering:

-- The meaning of real time and how social media fits into the equation
