What we do
As the industry body for digital advertising, we are uniquely placed to bring you the latest what’s happening in digital advertising right now, and what’s to come in the future. We bring our members together – including media owners, ad tech, agencies and advertisers - to share best practices, develop guidelines and demonstrate the effectiveness of digital for brands. We work on behalf of all IAB members to ensure that our industry thrives and that advertisers - big and small - can harness the power of digital advertising effectively.
Each year, our events help members to navigate the latest innovations in digital advertising, celebrate the best of our industry and prepare for the future. Can't make one? IAB UK members can catch up for free.
