16 October 2019 | Petaling Jaya

As the advertising landscape becomes more complex, marketers are re-evaluating and looking towards technology to solve challenges on how they create, buy, and activate their campaigns, in addition to investing in data analytics to evaluate performance. 

A recent poll by the World Federation of Advertisers (WFA) found that 40% APAC marketers consider programmatic central to the planning and execution of the marketing mix. And, IDC predicts that by 2022, consumers will use AI-powered bots to programmatically control 12% of online purchases, leading to increased brand loyalty and market share for brands with the best bot marketing. 

Programmatic is not just a fleeting technology trend, it is here to stay and will continue to revolutionise the industry. 

Learn about the future of digital advertising and marketing and discuss topical issues at this second annual convergence of movers and shakers that fuels the programmatic economy.
