IAB Europe Webinar: Universal ID – As the cookie crumbles, is this the solution?

In this webinar organised by the IAB Europe Education and Training Committee in collaboration with the Programmatic Trading Committee, we want to find answers and educate the audience on what – to many – is the solution for advertising in the post cookie age. Alongside leading experts in the field, we will take a look at what a universal ID is, what advantages it offers to both advertisers and consumers, its limitations and the challenges it faces but also look at alternatives. To learn more about this technology we invite you to read the articles by Alwin Viereck, Head of Programmatic Advertising and Ad Management, United Internet Media on our website here and here.
