UPDATE:  We are delighted to announce that Exchange Wire will be our media partners for this event

The Marketing and Media Privacy Summit marks the week of GDPR enforcement with an uncompromising assessment of the impact data-driven marketing and media has had on brands, agencies, publishers and consumers. We will ask whether GDPR will usher in a new beginning for a better, more effective and honest marketplace? If so, what does that future look like?

On 22 May, three days before The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force, Marketing, Media and Privacy (MMaP) brings together leading experts to discuss the future of media and marketing in a post-GDPR world and the evolutions we will see in the following 12 months as GDPR comes into full effect.

Questions that will be answered on the day

Does GDPR offer a real chance of transparency? Or will there always be smoke and mirrors?

Can new technology really protect privacy, build trust and drive competitive advantage?

Has GDPR killed programmatic trading?

What are the best ways to ask for consent, and once you have it what do you do?

Can trust and engagement be built with pseudonymity, transparency and accountability?

 Legal-speak has made privacy unusable. Can we rescue privacy from the lawyers?

GDPR has made targeted media risky, can trade associations help de-risk?

Be prepared to hear some lively debates, controversial views and case studies that reveal how brands and publishers plan to use compliant data for media and marketing.

Who Should Attend?

The huge and still uncertain impact of GDPR and the vital significance of the topics being debated make this event important to anyone in a leadership position within marketing and media.

This is an event for anyone whose business depends on buying or selling targeted digital advertising. Marketing Media and Privacy is specifically aimed at: senior marketers, data scientists and DPOs within consumer brands; the senior commercial and sales team at digital media brands; and the commercial leadership of media agencies.
