The State of Digital Advertising in 2019

Digital advertising is growing fast, constantly changing and more fragmented than ever. To keep up, marketers are increasingly shifting their ad dollars to the platforms that are easiest to use, and have been proven to drive ROI – the walled gardens. Facebook and Google now command more than 60% of all digital ad dollars today. The problem, however, is that these environments don’t have the reach comparable to the spend they drive, and only command about 30% of consumer attention. 


Kicking off the Brand Innovation Track, OpenX Co-Founder Jason Fairchild takes the stage to talk about why we’re seeing a massive asymmetry in ad spend today, the impact this dynamic is having on marketers and publishers, and the key to restoring balance to the digital ad ecosystem.

TV’s Tipping Point: Streaming Has Become Mainstream

More people than ever are streaming video content. Whether it be on a smart TV, a mobile phone or any other kind of connected device, it’s clear that OTT usage has grown to make up a significant portion of all consumer time spent with media, and it’s not slowing anytime soon. 


Now the industry must take a hard look at the $150+ billion spent on TV ads worldwide and ensure it’s being used in a way that provides the best return for advertisers. Dallas Lawrence, chief brand officer at OpenX, takes the stage to share insights and key learnings from “The 2019 OTT Consumer Report,” followed by a lively discussion among industry leaders on how marketers can navigate this lucrative space.

Reprogramming Programmatc

Australia is facing calls to adopt a GDPR-style privacy code. With significant regulation on the horizon or in effect over third-party data, opt-ins and digital transparency, will these restrictions advance the quality of digital marketing and improve the advertising experience for the consumer or will it spell trouble for the industry? Is it time to reprogram programmatic?
