Keeping up with the Technology: Helping Brands Navigate a Complex Digital Ad Environment

Constant change is the norm in digital advertising. As programmatic continues to evolve from disruptive technology to mainstream transactional vehicle, it’s not surprising that more focus is being paid to who exactly should ‘own’ the channel.


In this session, OpenX SVP of Global Buyer Development Carol Reed leads a conversation between brand marketers, agency executives and industry consultants to talk about the changing dynamic of their relationships with brands and marketers, and how the new ideas and innovative thinking they are bringing to the table are helping their clients successfully navigate an increasingly complex digital environment.
