The aim of this course is to provide a comprehensive overview of how Programmatic has come into being, what it is, and what it might become.

The digital display market has been rapidly ‘going Programmatic’ and soon, this will also affect traditional media channels (OOH, TV, Radio).

This course is for those in sales who need to know more about what they are up against when they start to hear from their agencies that spend will no longer come their way ‘because it has all gone Programmatic’ or ‘has all gone to the internal Trading Desk’; or alternatively those who need to be aware of what the changes might mean for their businesses, and what they can do about it.
