ExchangeWire Announces ATS (Ad Trading Summit) Sydney 2012

Thursday, February 16, 2012

With the explosive growth of RTB and automated trading globally, what impact will this have on digital advertising in the region? What will the future media buying landscape look like? How will this shape existing roles within the media buying chain? Are we looking at a data and technology driven future?

ATS Sydney will address these questions and more with keynotes and carefully curated panels of regional senior industry figures. ATS Sydney is the first focused event of its kind on the data-driven display marketplace in Australia, South-East Asia and the wider APAC region. Delving deep into the business of automated media trading and the technology that underpins it, ATS Sydney will inform attendees on the latest trends in display buying.

Areas of focus for ATS Sydney include programmatic buying, real-time bidding, data trading, re-marketing, semantic targeting, contextual targeting, audience buying, ad technology infrastructure, media optimisation, agency/advertiser automated-buying strategy and publisher-side trading.

Keynoting at the event will be ninemsn Group CEO Mark Britt who says; “The capabilities of real-time buying are yet to be fully realised in this part of the world. Exchanges are changing the ad game globally, and we’re seeing major shift in the way the Australian market operates as a result of us introducing the Microsoft Advertising Exchange late last year.

“This is not a product it’s an entirely new way of media buying and selling – and ATS is a highly regarded industry event attended by some of the best minds in digital, so we’re pleased to be hosting the APAC event in Sydney in 2012.” says Britt.
