Association of online publishers Helping media owners build better digital business

Programme announced for Ad Research Forum

Ad Effectiveness Wordle 2Image created with
Our final event of the year is about demonstrating how media brands can benefit from understanding deeply engaged audiences. We ask how research is developing to understand the drivers of consumer behaviour online. We also look to identify the value of different online environments, and ultimately how knowledge of consumer engagement creates new commercial opportunities for media brands. AOP's Ad Research Forum takes place on 7 December at the Blue Fin in Southwark, from 2pm. There are limited places left - Book your ticket here. This event will be informed by the results of AOP’s latest research study, which is set to be released in early December, and builds on last year’s New Rules of Engagement Study.
