7 Virtual programmatic and ad tech events in May and June 2020

Despite a lot of marketing and ad tech events being postponed or canceled, the industry isn’t hibernating. Instead, we see tons of webinars, talks, podcasts, and interviews evolving brands, agencies, ad tech vendors, publishers, and nearly everyone in-between the supply chain sharing the insights as for the lockdown and keeping vocalizing fundamental topics like transparency, post-cookie times, in-housing, SPO, and beyond. 

Everyone is trying to adopt the change and to adapt to it – at the same time helping other pals in the industry to cope with that. That’s great, on the one hand, but on the other – seems a bit overwhelming, as the amount of content avalanches on us is just huge.

To help you stay up-to-date without drowning in the ad tech events & promotions content, we’ve put together the list of biggest virtual programmatic and ad tech events happening in May and June. Here’s a brief overview of them.
