Posted on: Thursday 30 April 2020 | IAB UK

The first webinar from IAB Tech Lab's Project Rearc is available to watch now and includes insights on the history of cookies and the evolution of tracking

With impending changes to third-party cookies and other identifiers, IAB Tech Lab have set up the Project Rearc global initiative to bring stakeholders from across the industry together to re-think and re-architect digital marketing. You can find out more information about Project Rearc on the Tech Lab website.

As part of this project, IAB Tech Lab are hosting a series of webinars which will provide different perspectives on this topic, information on the next steps of Rearc and how to get involved in the process. The first webinar provided an overview on the history of cookies, tracking, the evolution of the internet, and how we got to where we are today. The webinar and it's companion presentation deck, can both be viewed below.
