Table of contents

    The media, advertising and digital industries are going through a big transformation these years and have been networking tightly with each other. Along with innovations and high-tech solutions, industry participants confront new challenges in many other areas: privacy, identity, measurement, targeting and addressability. But on the other hand, new challenges also reveal new opportunities to design entirely new products and implement new technologies.

    These opportunities mostly encourage digital ad communities to cooperate with other industry counterparts to promote their businesses and lead to successful outcomes. While online interaction works for them to analyze the campaign performance and bring up solutions to reach the best results, offline events are to help advertisers, publishers, and content creators get acquainted with the latest innovations of colleagues and find mutually beneficial cooperation.

    We have gathered the most promising Ad Tech events for 2022, where you can meet with your colleagues and potential partners from different parts of the world in person.
