The future is moving

They’ll be discussing how advertisers and brands can navigate the challenges posed by an ever-more complex video ecosystem - from programmatic video to live video, native video to VR.
There’s changes afoot in the digital advertising space, as both performance and brand advertisers move to exciting new ad formats such as rewarded mobile ads. But how can brands boldly take advantage of this change? And how can data inform the creative designs to most appeal to consumers?
