Header Bidders & Containers

At past Publisher Summits, participants received an unprecedented, transparent, deep dive into the mechanics of header bidding. This year, we will focus on the proliferation of this technology and the complications caused by wrapper solutions. We’ll mutually outline the challenges that need to be addressed and discuss potential product and industry solutions.

In 2016, OpenX outlined plans for header bidding, improving speed and the user experience which Summit participants were able to help shape.
