As a pioneer of the technology, and one of the leading providers of header bidding in the U.S., OpenX will highlight the success publishers and advertisers have experienced as they integrate the technology into their monetization and campaign strategies. OpenX Bidder, on average, delivers 300 percent more revenue than any other header bidding solution, and publishers using OpenX Bidder have experienced revenue lifts of 30 percent – 50 percent.

Nick Kovac, Managing Director, Japan at OpenX commented: “Header bidding is set to become a staple component of the programmatic toolkit across APAC, following its success in the US and EMEA regions. The technology plays a vital role in enabling publishers to monetize their content, while enhancing ad planning strategy for buyers. The panel will provide an informative look at header bidding as it gains traction within the Japanese marketplace, delving into why the tool is key for programmatic success.”

The Data Driven Value of Header Bidding for Publishers…and Advertisers will explore real data that demonstrates the quantitative benefits of header bidding for buyers.
