State of the Nation 2020 – IAB Canada’s National Townhall Event Uninterrupted 

Every year, IAB Canada moves across the country to present the State of the Nation event which, brings the Canadian digital media industry together for a townhall style discussion around critical developments and “must know” topics affecting the entire ecosystem. 

This year we are excited to deliver on the spirit of the event while following an engagement-friendly new format. On June 17th we will kick off the main event with an industry update that covers off the key areas of development followed by guest speakers from the IAB Tech Lab to unpack technical innovations and the work being done around the cookie-less future of our industry. The session finishes with a deep-dive on privacy and policy with an international panel discussion around what every stakeholder needs to know today about complying with domestic and international privacy laws. 

State of the Nation continues in the following weeks with break-out webinars that feature topics like the automated future of online advertising as well as innovation in the digital landscape.
