WEBINAR · 11.09.17 · 2-3pm EST
We’d like to invite you to our upcoming IAB webinar “How to Make a Better Video Experience”.
Date & Time: Thursday, November 9th at 2-3pm EST/11am PST.
The power of video to engage consumers is well understood by both publishers and advertisers, and further evidenced the meteoric rise in digital video ad revenue (which over the past year has seen a gain of 51% across mobile and desktop and 178% on mobile). But what are the key drivers for a quality user experience, and how should publishers and advertisers optimize their creative engagement strategies to get the most out of video? In this webinar leaders representing key parts of the video ecosystem—from publishing, to creative workflow and video ad and content delivery–will share their thoughts on what matters most for a quality experience, and the roles each of us play in getting it right for consumers. To help guide the group’s discussion we invite you to share the question you’d like us to have addressed. Feel free to add your thoughts on suggested questions link.
