The desire for 100% viewability continues to dominate the marketing media’s discussion, but the media often neglects to mention that completely viewable content is near impossible. This panel will focus on how advertisers can set realistic viewability expectations in the programmatic landscape while working with agencies and publishers to improve standards across the industry.

Join BIMA as a dynamic panel of thought leaders from all sides of the programmatic ecosystem – including supply side, media measurement, publishers, and buy side – come together to discuss real world experiences and the steps each are taking to significantly improve viewability standards and limit waste, while maintaining current Key Performance Indicators. A third-party expert will moderate what is sure to be a must-see discussion for strategic thinkers from any element of the digital media community.
