Transparency in the digital advertising market: measurement, accountability and trust

Morning, Tuesday, 5th June 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will consider the further action that can be taken by industry, policymakers and regulators to increase accountability, trust and transparency in the digital advertising market.


It takes place as the Lord’s Communication Committee hold an inquiry into the future of the industry, examining how policy and practices might help the sector maintain its international competiveness, in light of recent high profile cases of ad misplacement, and with the continuing consumer trend of ad blocking.


Delegates will discuss latest progress in the development of strategies to improve transparency - including looking at harmonised viewability standards, third-party measurement verification, access to objective and accountable data, and issues around agency contracts.


Further sessions will consider what more can be done to prevent ad fraud and promote brand safety, and the shape of any new regulations which may be introduced.
