A Whole New World: Ad Tech In 2019

Constant change has been the name of the game in ad tech over the last two years as new technologies and business practices disrupted the status quo. From header bidding to auction manipulation and the rise of identity and one-to-one marketing, sell-side tech companies have had to continuously evolve to keep their place in the supply chain. Moving to 2019, the risk of commoditization is greater than ever. Supply side companies must once again rethink how they provide value, and stand out from the pack. Industry veteran Tim Cadogan takes the stage today to share what the industry can expect from these companies in 2019.
