Digital Trust Forum returns to tackle key issues

Posted on Tuesday 02 March 2021 | IAB UK

Following our first Digital Trust Forum last year, the event will be returning in May 2021 to dig into some of the biggest issues facing our industry

In 2020, we hosted our inaugural Digital Trust Forum, bringing together over 400 delegates from across the digital ad industry to focus on the key issues facing digital advertising. With speakers including the Advertising Association’s Keith Weed, author and broadcaster Nina Schick, Facebook’s Nick Baughan, the ICO’s Ali Shah and NewsGuard’s Anna-Sophie Harling, sessions spanned the rise of deep fakes, digital transparency, the impact of keyword blocking, and how we can collectively turn the tide on falling trust.

Digital Trust Forum will be returning on Wednesday 26 May 2021, and while we'll still be virtual, you can expect a raft of inspiring, challenging and thought-provoking speakers as we come together to explore the key challenges that are undermining trust in digital - and what needs to change.

Commenting on the return of Digital Trust Forum, Tim Elkington, IAB UK’s Chief Digital Officer said: “As an industry, we know that advertising - digital included - has a trust problem and it’s in all of our power to help address the underlying issues that are eroding trust. Digital Trust Forum gives us the opportunity to highlight and understand these issues, as well as having a frank conversation about how we can create lasting solutions.”
