IAB Connect 2019

A Better Digital World
Digital has come of age, and with this maturity comes the opportunity to ensure that we are creating, A Better Digital World for users, advertisers and for media owners.

The pace of digital innovation requires collaboration with advertising partners to best understand new opportunities and access their potential value in delivering marketing objectives.  New technologies can empower organisations to re-imagine how they interact with consumers.   Successful brands require rich insights and quality data along with the agility and flexibility to incorporate these into their marketing plans.

We will have a special focus on Digital Audio at the conference with brand new Irish Research conducted by Red C, and other contributions from Acast and AdsWizz putting the research in context and sharing their knowledge and tips for Brands around the Digital Audio Opportunity.
