Info about event and panel
The EDAA Summit, now in its 4th successive year, has become a staple calendar event within the privacy and advertising technology fields, and is known for provoking honest, open, intellectual and critical debate, covering broad viewpoints. This year’s event, under the banner “Delivering a consumer-centric future for the digital ad world” will examine the current policy and regulatory environment for ad tech, and the tools and opportunities for the industry to embrace change in order to provide meaningful transparency and control with the aim to truly empower consumers online, with regard to the processing of their personal data.
This panel, under the suggested headline “Bridging the trust reckoning” comes at a critical juncture for the online advertising industry, and will aim to reveal real opinions of consumers with regards to their use of online services and expectations of the companies involved in providing and supporting those services in this data-centric world. The audience, spanning trade associations, NGOs, academia, and digital advertising businesses, will have the opportunity to grasp what academics and everyday consumers feel about their data being used online, and how EDAA and its governing associations play a critical and proven role in bridging consumer trust in the digital ad space. On the panel moderated by a University professor, the EDAA will aim to have several students from various backgrounds cover a broad range of views about what consumer trust means to them.
