UK Summit 19
London

September 5, 2019

 Rubicon Project’s upcoming UK Summit, our flagship event in the UK, is set to take place in London on the 5th of September 2019.

It has been another year of great growth in our industry, and our UK Summit will dig into the current programmatic landscape with some fantastic speakers, whilst highlighting our themes of collaboration, transformation and transparency throughout the event.

The day will be split into two parts, with the morning dedicated to the Seller and Buyer/DSP Exchanges and the afternoon set aside for broader industry-focused, and thought leadership, sessions, including Tom Kershaw our CTO, on what to expect in 2020 and beyond.

The day will conclude with canapes, drinks and networking at the h Club from 4.30pm. 

 

Please note the Summit is strictly invitation only.
