Rob Norman, the newly named Global Digital Officer of GroupM, the giant WPP media unit, and Brett Wilson, CEO of TubeMogul, a video advertising services company, will keynote a half-day conference on the state of Real-Time Buying (RTB) and video advertising, on Thursday, September 27 in New York at the GroupM offices.
The State of RTB
Programmatic buying of video is experiencing phenomenal growth and some analysts argue that programmatic buying will become the norm. However, many premium publishers such as cable networks and big portals prefer to manage their own inventory sales. Some see exchanges, which are operated by ad agency trading desks, as a threat to their control over prices.
To allay some of these concerns, private marketplaces can provide publishers with their own technology platform to manage their "sell side" of the business, explains Keith Eadie, VP of marketing at TubeMogul in this interview with Beet.TV
