Mobile Marketing Center Of Excellence

The Mobile Marketing Center of Excellence, an independently funded and staffed unit inside the IAB, is charged with empowering the media and marketing industries to thrive in a “mobile-always” world and in an increasingly “direct brand economy,” where user experience and consumer relationships are at the heart of modern day marketing and a significant driver of publisher transformation. Since its launch in 2010, the Mobile Center has helped accelerate the growth of the mobile ecosystem through standard setting, best practices, consumer research and public advocacy.

Mobile is not about the device…it is about mobility. IAB Mobile Center focuses on the intersection of creativity/innovation and technology, both of which enhance the consumer’s mobile experience and journey, whether that be on a phone/tablet, in a car, in a store or on the street.
