IAB Connect H2 2023

Thursday 16th November, 9am-1pm

Mapping the future of Measurement 

IAB Connect H2 will showcase innovative measurement strategies utilising AI, focused on maximising attention and brand building . We will share the latest learnings from agencies, platforms and publishers and as our industry dedicates itself to a more Sustainable future, a very timely case study from Energia on digital advertising carbon measurement.

The phasing out of third party cookies, along with evolving privacy regulation presents fundamental but positive change for the digital advertising industry. 

These changes provide the opportunity to re-think digital marketing and measurement frameworks to protect the insights that businesses need to grow, along with best practices for assessing the impact of digital advertising into the future.
