Delivering a Stamp of Trust for the Media Industry

Breakfast Briefing

BB June 17

More choices, less trust?

With such a breadth of media platforms and channels now available, buyers and planners are spoilt for choice. But how has the increase in options affected transparency in trading - and how can you trust what you're being told?

Editor David Pidgeon, our Chair for this event, talked about some of the challenges facing buyers and planners before he introduced our line-up of high profile industry speakers.

Attendees had the chance to find out the answers to questions such as:

  • How are new routes to market being made transparent?
  • How is ABC keeping pace?
  • What questions do you need to be asking as part of your buying negotiations?
