The Steering Committee of the D-MIB (Digital Measurement Industry Bodies) has organised the 5th edition of this Private Invitation-Only Roundtable that will happen on April 24th from 9:00-16:00 in Porto, Portugal during the I-COM Global Summit 2017.

D-MIB leverages the advantages of coming together, to share best practice and collectively improve how audiences are measured for the purpose of supporting display advertising. Also, given the rising importance of Global approaches to measurement, there is an increasing opportunity and need to benchmark, collaborate and coordinate activities on an international level.

As many of the D-MIB organisations are regular I-COM attendees, we agreed that it would be synergetic to facilitate a private meeting as part of our I-COM Global Summit.
