Real Time Advertising has become a key topic over the past 18 months. But what does it mean for marketers?

The IAB UK is hosting its first ever conference on Real Time Advertising (RTA) aimed at advertisers, agencies and publishers who need to know more about this rapidly growing sector. 

RTA has become a hot topic over recent months, causing fundamental changes in the online display landscape and the media trading industry. The Real Time Advertising Conference follows last year's sell out event Real Time Advertising seminar, 'Real Time Advertising: The Truth', which reinforced the need for more information around this particularly complex industry.

The Real Time Advertising Conference will cover key issues such as: using data to make decisions; programmatic buying; the publisher perspective; and real time creative solutions.

This event is for advertisers, agencies and publishers who are would like to know more about the ever evolving online display landscape and how real time advertising is changing the media trading industry.
