Marketing, Media & Privacy - 22 May 2018


Media Partner


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.

About Marketing Media and Privacy 2018

Marketing Media and Privacy 2018 is brought to you by an exclusive team of digital advertising, privacy specialists and senior business strategists from Kantara Initiative, Open Consent, The Trust Bridge and AdUnity. The event marks the week of GDPR enforcement and asks whether GDPR will really usher in a new era of digital privacy and be as disruptive as many people say.

MMaP 2018 takes a digital marketing and media perspective of GDPR. We will look at what GDPR was intended to achieve: protect consumer privacy, inspire technology innovation, stimulate new business models, encourage codes of conduct, support the use of industry standards and provide one of the main building blocks for the Digital Single Market. Will this happen? Has this happened? What is really happening? Marketing Media and Privacy 2018 is the best place to evaluate the real impact of GDPR and where it is taking the industry.

At the event, speakers, panellists and delegates from the industry are encouraged to engage in frank and mutually beneficial dialogue with each other as well as with a host of privacy regulation and privacy standards experts.
