Fixing Advertising Came to London to Explore How the Changing Display Landscape That Is Taking North America by Storm Is Taking Shape in Europe

SAN FRANCISCO – Dapper, a pioneer in transforming display advertising into a predictable and scalable performance marketing channel, announced that it has brought its acclaimed Fixing Advertising series to London on September 21. In its first European engagement, the Fixing Advertising panel took a deep dive into the new data and technology driven display advertising ecosystem and showcased new data on how brands in the United States and Europe are creating profitable display marketing programs. Moderated by ExchangeWire.com’s Ciaran O’Kane, the panel featured Alex Gisbert (Expedia), Stephen Taylor (former CEO of Qype), Joseph Leon (Essence), John Genna (Microsoft), Pierre Naggar (Yahoo!), and Jon Aizen (Dapper). These industry innovators engaged in an active discussion about how technology and data are finally enabling marketers to drive accountability, scale, and profitability in display.

“The new world of display advertising is reaching critical mass in the US, and it’s poised to grow to at least $17 billion worldwide by 2014,” said James Beriker, CEO of Dapper. “As marketers across the globe look to display to become a more accountable channel — as search has been for more than a decade — we’re continuing to lead the discussion about how to leverage technology and data to transform the channel. We’re very excited to take this discussion into the U.K.”
