This September, IAB Europe will be hosting a series of virtual events to discuss and debate trust and transparency in the digital advertising industry. A lack of transparency and accountability will cause notable friction in any value chain, especially in digital advertising. Our series of events will discuss what’s currently being done and what else needs to be done to ensure a sustainable future.
In our headline event, The Great Debate, we will address best practices, and current initiatives to drive trust and transparency in our industry. Through a series of keynote presentations and panel discussions, industry experts will share their views on what’s being done and what else needs to be done to drive trust and transparency in digital advertising today.

Speaker: Tim Elkington, Chief Digital Officer, IAB UK
12:20 - Panel Discussion with audience Q&A: IAB Europe’s Pan-European Buyer’s Quality Survey results
IAB Europe’s survey found that buyers are willing to pay more for premium, high quality and trusted inventory and that the majority prefer to spend their advertising budget with suppliers that adhere to industry standards in the area of quality. National IABs will discuss what this means for national quality standards within their markets and across Europe.
Moderator: Reyes Justribó, Director, IAB Spain
