Programmatic Mobile: Advanced Tactics for Maximising Monetisation
Monday, 20 March, 2017 – 10:15am
The Guardian Stage

Increasingly, consumers are shifting to mobile-first browsing behaviours. At the same time, brands continue to shift ad spending to programmatic, as evidenced by the growing prevalence of private marketplace (PMP) and automated guaranteed transactions. As a result, both publishers and buyers are altering their digital advertising strategies and practices to align with these trends, including the increased adoption of PMPs for mobile, the transition of direct insertion orders (IOs) to programmatic and the evolution of header bidding.

Join a panel of thought leaders from the mobile industry as they discuss the trends that publishers are seeing as they adopt advanced programmatic tactics like header bidding, private marketplaces and automated guaranteed for monetizing their mobile inventory, and what they’ve found useful as they do so.

Header bidding has become a valuable tool for publishers and advertisers to manage demand on the desktop, but what about on mobile devices? Mobile usage has exploded exponentially, with 2/3 of all screen time taking place on smartphones and tablets and roughly half of all screen time spent in-apps. As marketing dollars continue to follow the eyeballs, how can we ensure that lessons learned in desktop are carried forward?

Join a panel of industry experts as they delve into the opportunities and challenges afforded mobile by ad decisioning tactics like header bidding.
