Dstillery Wins Quirk’s Media’s Groundbreaking Research Project Award

Company scientists and engineers showcase innovative prediction techniques

New York – November 20, 2019 Dstillery, the leading custom audience solutions partner for agencies and brands, is pleased to announce that it has won the Groundbreaking Research Project Award, part of The Marketing Research and Insight Excellence Awards, powered by Quirk’s Media. This award reinforces Dstillery’s reputation for unique expertise in data science.

Peter Lenz, Senior Geospatial Analyst, Data Science & Analytics, Peter Ibarra, Director of Strategic Initiatives, and Matt Sabban, Director of Solutions Engineering, accepted the award at the Quirk’s black-tie gala on Monday, November 18, at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. The trio earned the nomination for their use of novel AI-power clustering techniques to look at whether Fantasy Sports, e-Sports, and e-Gambling represent good investments for sports teams seeking to expand their current pool of in-stadium ticket buyers.

“It was an honor just to be recognized for our research, but to win this award is a career highlight,” said Lenz. “The depth and breadth of data that Dstillery has available is incredibly valuable for advertisers, but it can also be applied in new and unconventional ways. It’s a great benefit that the company allows us to use that data in our passion projects. This project was spurred by our shared interest in the New York Mets, and unlike that team, we’ve managed to bring home an award.”

The company was nominated for the Groundbreaking Research Project alongside leading companies across the data science landscape. To learn more about the winning research paper and its conclusions, listen to a podcast conversation with the researchers.
