Wednesday 14 September 2016

Workshop | 11:00am – 11:45am | Seminar 3 in Hall 5 | “Header Bidding: Lessons Learned and What’s Next
With header bidding now confirmed as the most disruptive and innovative technology in ad tech in recent years, and with almost 70% of publishers using it as part of their monetisation strategy, what are  the most important lessons we’ve learnt from the rise of the technology over the last eighteen months? The panel will discuss how it has impacted publisher’s monetisation strategies, best practices for achieving maximum yield and managing multiple header tags through the use of containers – and will also address what’s next in header bidding as the technology is applied to mobile and video. Some of the questions the panel will address will be whether Google’s offering Enhanced Dynamic Allocation changes anything and whether it is the best use of the technology for it to stay on the browser side, or is the server-to-server connection the way forward. What problems would that solve and is it scalable? Join Jason Fairchild, CRO and Co-Founder at OpenX, Qasim Saifee, SVP of Monetisation at OpenX, Hannah Buitekant, GM, Programmatic, Mobile, Video at MailOnline, Serhan GünesHead of Advertising & Partnerships at eBay Kleinanzeigen and Patrick McCann, Vice President, Data Science at CafeMedia for this exclusive workshop moderated by Alison Fennah, Executive Business Advisor at IAB Europe.

School of Programmatic: The Need for Speed – Publisher Latency

The School of Programmatic is Back!

SOP logoOpenX is excited to host our “back to school” School of Programmatic session to discuss “The Need for Speed – Publisher Latency.” Join us as we explore the four main elements that impact page load and how you, as a publisher, can optimise for speed.

Why is speed top of mind now? The recent rise of container solutions, header bidding and the shift to mobile have created competition for web and app resources required to quickly load a page, making it critical for the entire online advertising ecosystem to solve for speed and mitigate latency. 

There will also be a panel with: Sherzod Rizaev, Global Head of Commercial Operations, Minute Media; Adib Razzaq, Head of Programmatic, ESI Media and Anthony Hitchings, Digital Advertising Operations Director, Financial Times (moderated by Caleb Sotelo, Lead Engineer & Director of OpenX Labs, OpenX).

School of Programmatic: Evolution of Client & Server-Side Container Solutions

School of Programmatic UKGet ahead of header bidding with the next School of Programmatic workshop, Evolution of Client & Server-Side
Container Solutions.
Header bidding – a recent
ly developed monetisation tool that exposes each impression to maximum demand – has now been adopted by 70% of publishers. Its popularity is such that new tools – called containers or wrappers – have been developed to manage multiple demand partners.

Join us as we explore the rapid evolution of the header-bidding container – from the initial client-side solutions that operate on the browser to the more sophisticated server-side solutions. We will explain how correct implementation of these tools leads to greater portability of exchange partners, operational efficiency, reduced latency, and increased performance.

School of Programmatic: A New Currency for Measuring Quality: Viewability (and Fraud Guarantee)

School of Programmatic UK
The School of Programmatic completes its 2016 curriculum with an informative workshop, A new currency for measuring quality: viewability (and fraud guarantee).

Viewability – whether an ad is seen by the user or not – is fast becoming the most popular indicator of campaign performance. But viewability, and other measures of engagement such as cost-per-hour (CPH), are also helping to overcome the ad blocking challenge by driving higher ad quality and guaranteeing fraud-safe environments.

Join us as we explore how viewability has become the new currency for measuring ad quality and user experience, and the impact this will have on the prevalence of ad blocking.

Speakers include:

  • Robert Perine, Senior Product Manager, OpenX
  • Paul De La Nougerede, Commercial Product Director, The Telegraph
  • Julie Smith, General Manager, Symmachia
  • Orly Tsesis, Head of Demand Europe, Inneractive
  • Paul Nasse, UK Commercial Director, Integral Ad Science
