“Though growing fast, Real Time Bidding is still a relatively new technology that deserves to be discussed in a dedicated format like this,” said Michael Barrett, AdMeld’s CEO. “Our goal for the AdMeld Partner Forum is to gather the industry’s thought leaders and RTB practitioners for a lively discussion about the technology’s uses, where it’s headed, and what it means for premium publishers and the ecosystem as a whole. The plan is to jumpstart the conversation about RTB so it’s on everyone’s radar in 2010.”
