The IAB, with thanks to our Search Council, has put together this Search 2017: Emerging Trends white paper with the intention of helping advertisers and agencies in understanding the best ways for them to be executing their search programmes. With an ever-growing medium, it is essential that we make the most out of it.

The IAB UK’s Search Council member list features industry leaders who meet a few times a year with the IAB to discuss, understand and act on the best ways to take the specialism forward. As a follow up to the IAB Search 2016: Emerging Trends Green Paper, this Search 2017: Emerging Trends White Paper discusses the relevant subjects and trends that we are seeing in search, such as mobile, artificial intelligence, location, measurement, personal assistants, and consumer behaviour.
