Every year, programmatic further permeates marketing, from the increasing number of marketers who deploy it to the ever expanding ad formats it supports. Every year, thousands of marketers convene at events around the globe to better understand it & prepare for its evolution. One event in particular is seen as a tentpole in this area, and it’s coming up!

Next week, marketers will flock to San Francisco for Programmatic I/O, a two-day event that offers an effective solution for marketers looking to get even more educated on the future of digital marketing. On April 29th and 30th, over 1,200 media and marketing professionals will come together to share their insights and experiences surrounding programmatic.

Attendees will get the opportunity to hear from over 65 expert speakers, from industry innovators and leaders to researchers and analysts on both the buy and sell side of programmatic media.

At Programmatic I/O, there’s going to be more than 50 compelling best practice presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and one-on-one talks.
