LONDON, 28 July, 2022 – Omdia has been designated as the official research partner for IBC2022 in Amsterdam this September, IBC’s first in-person event after two years of virtual formats. Through the strategic alliance, this year’s conference delegates will have access to Omdia’s exclusive report, The Advertising Revolution: How CTV, FAST, and AVOD Are Reshaping the TV and Video Landscape.

Findings from the report will be presented during the conference programme as well as in the Showcase Theatre by a team of Omdia analysts led by Gallagher that includes Maria Rua Aguete, Senior Research Director, Visual Entertainment, Dan Simmons, Research Director, Media Delivery and Matthew Bailey, Principal Analyst, Advertising.

Michael Crimp, IBC’s Chief Executive Officer said: “We are excited to welcome Omdia as the official research partner for IBC2022.
