Ozone Project restoring publisher control over monetisation

This session will look at the future of the first-party data monetisation strategy–a world where publishers have restored control of their most precious asset and its distribution. With scarcity restored, we will look at the role of ‘clean’ technology and publisher collaboration as a vehicle for market-level change. We will look at the 2x revenue growth that early-movers are enjoying as a result…a path that surely other publishers will follow.

Danny Spears, COO, The Ozone Project, UK, with more participants to be announced. Hosted by Martha Williams.
