IAB Voice Research Launch

The age of voice is here, but the landscape is complicated…
Part of building a sustainable future for digital advertising is helping businesses to prepare for the future. IAB UK and IPSOS MORI Connect have worked together to map out what the future of voice will look like, by exploring:
Technology – what will the future of voice look like from a technological point of view?
Consumers - What will consumers need and want from voice technology, the brands and the businesses that want to connect with, sell to, or help them?
Brands - how are brands and businesses currently trying to leverage voice? What are the opportunities and threats in the future?
The report will give actionable guidance to advertisers and brands to enable them to better connect with consumers in voice by capitalising on opportunities and managing threats, both now and in the future.
Join us for the project launch at what promises to be an inspiring, educational and certainly thought-provoking session!
