Rebirth of Digital Advertising at Web Wednesday HK

Now that Mark Zuckerberg has testified in front of the US Congress and Sir Martin Sorrell has resigned from the helm of WPP, the world's largest advertising group, we thought it would be the perfect moment to discuss the rebirth of the digital advertising industry at our 111th Web Wednesday Social Mixer on 25th April, 2018.

I've invited two speakers from the cutting edge of online advertising:

- Dominic Powers, CEO of CtrlShift, whose mission is "to fix a broken industry and give control back to brands and publishers"

- Adrian Teh, GM of iPinYou International (ε“ε‹δΊ’εŠ¨, China’s largest programmatic ad buying DSP provider

We'll be talking about how data is changing the way that people trade our attention and where it is all going in a world of increasing privacy awareness and consumer empowerment.

Come join us at Levels Club, 2/F On Hing Building,  No. 1 On Hing Terrace, Central, Hong Kong. Doors open at 6:30pm, with the talk kicking off around 7:15pm. Entrance fee of HK$100 includes one standard drink.

Spread the good word and see you there!
