After last year's sell out Video Engage event, we will once again be bringing you another half day conference delving into the world of online video advertising.

The Internet Advertising Bureau would like to invite you to our biggest online video advertising event IAB Video: In Demand where we’ll be celebrating the fastest growing ad format in the UK

After last year's sell out Video Engage event, we will once again be bringing you another half day conference delving into the world of online video advertising and marketing.

Online video advertising is one of the fastest growing advertising formats in the world. In the UK alone, online video advertising grew in 2011 by a market beating 100 per cent to reach £109 million (IAB / PwC Online AdSpend Study) - and all indicators point to a continued explosion in growth.

Very quickly, we’ll witness online video advertising become the biggest audio visual advertising channel, second only to broadcast. Indeed, 11 per cent of buyers are now allocating more than £100,000 for each of their online video campaigns.

Join us at the BFI Southbank to hear topics from social to measurement, devices, broadcast and connected TVs and celebrate this outstanding growth in an exciting arena.

Hear from two of our main sponsors, MediaMind and Unruly Media alongside key members of the IAB Video Council including YouTube.

1.10pm: The new Linear Lean-Back: When it comes to video, even online needs to be prime-time

This is no time for B movies. Advertisers must seriously improve the quality, quantity and ambition of video advertising, because consumers today expect blockbuster video on every screen. The lineshave blurred between the “lean-in” world of digital exploration and “lean-out” TV consumption. Now video is consumed everywhere from tablets to taxis. And as in-stream prepares to outpace all other media growth, advertisers can’t be conservative. Consumers are ready, 4G can handle it, HD is ubiquitous – so there’s no excuse (or consumer tolerance) for anything less than your best technical game, production quality and entertainment value. Join us for guidance on grabbing and measuring video opportunities on every screen.

Tej Rekhi, Innovation Strategist, MediaMind
