Event Details

The digital trading landscape is undergoing a fundamental shift. The rise of automated trading, exchanges, RTB, DSPs and agency trading desks is opening new opportunities for dealing in publisher data.

However, the ideal trading models are still unclear and, in such a fluid environment, the new opportunities that require change can also create confusion amongst publishers about how to proceed.

This forum looks at the key changes in this field and the implications for publishers and agencies alike as they rethink how they trade. We examine how publisher data is now being traded to maximise return, the issues this raises surrounding data usage and leakage, and how to unlock the value implicit in audience information.

We ask

  • With new players, platforms and practices emerging, how is the trading landscape shaping up?
  • How can publishers get the best from trading their data?
  • How can issues around data protection and policing best be addressed?
  • How can agencies and publishers work together to maximise returns?
