Origin attends The Beet Retreat, 2021.

Origin was delighted to be invited to the Beet Retreat this year. It was a veritable "who's who" of the CTV advertising world and included an array of industry leaders - many of whom are as passionate about progress as we are.

If Connected TV advertising is to reach its true potential, then candid and honest discussion is essential. And there was plenty of that for 2 full days in Santa Monica, CA.

On top of that, we also had:

  • Original thinking.

  • The audacity to disagree with one another on panels vs simply smile and nod at what people said.

  • Veterans providing essential thought leadership to the next generation.

  • The next generation providing essential thought leadership to the veterans.

And so on.

That's what it's all about. With summits/events/retreats like this, we can make the living room experience not just a positive one for families looking for great entertainment, but we can deliver it in a way that doesn't simply repeat history. The technology that underpins CTV is our invitation as an industry to make TV fundamentally different to what it's been for the best part of a century.

It's our chance to make it better.
