Campaign Breakfast Briefing – The Future of Programmatic

Campaign’s final Breakfast Briefing of 2018 will revisit our successful launch event held in February, which asked: How can marketing managers benefit from ad tech?

The next Briefing will take a more in-depth look at one particular aspect of ad tech: programmatic buying.
