Join us in London for the
AppNexus Summit: Build a Better Internet

The internet was founded as an engine for economic growth as well as freedom of expression. But over this past year, it’s grown apparent those foundations are in need of strengthening and reimagining. We, as an industry, must come together to maintain and advance a vibrant global marketplace for buyers, sellers and consumers that’s open, efficient and safe.

We’ll convene at King’s Place on May 4th to discuss GDPR and what this new standard of privacy entails for digital media. Other topics will include the critical need to bridge issues of trust and transparency in header bidding, advancements in machine learning that continue to revolutionize our industry – and the need for a digital ecosystem that’s transparent, free and fair. Join experts from AppNexus – and other key industry luminaries – as we discuss how ad tech can help build a better internet.
