ATS - London 2012


Ad Trading Summit, London 2012 - Tuesday, September 18
18th Sep 2012
BFI Southbank
Belvedere Road South Bank London, London SE1 8XT, GB

ATS London is the premier, global, data-driven event in the online advertising industry. It has grown to become the global hub of ad tech, drawing in industry decision makers and key participants from the US, Nordics, Germany, France and Asia.

Last year, ATS London focussed discussion and debate on the future of the media plan, the role of the trading desk, the inception of real time advertising beyond bidding and building better data infrastructures to fuel future success. ATS London 2012 will be taking the event to another level.

This year the event will be structured around three core themes:

• Programmatic Premium
• Applications of Programmatic Buying
• Big Data

The industry has moved on significantly since 2011. RTB is no longer a vision - it is now a business and commercial reality. This year, the level of dialogue will be more detailed and focussed, using the core themes to allow participants to delve into specific areas of interest. ATS London 2012 will feature THE biggest names in the industry and the most influential participants

It will be bringing more marketers and advertisers to the table than ever before. We will see real world examples of how data driven advertising is influencing positive change in businesses engaged with it, and we will see live demonstrations from some of the most forward thinking companies in the ecosystem.

The event will of course maintain its unique blend of controversy, debate, opinion sharing and networking. If there is one event that should be bookmarked in the calendar year, it’s ATS London 2012.

What is ATS?

Since launching in September 2010, the ATS conference series has facilitated debate and discussion around the biggest developments in mobile, video and online display.
