Making TV easier to buy – A vision from the US with OpenAP and ViacomCBS

When: 22 April 2021, 4:00 – 5:00 PM CET


Wegta is delighted to welcome David Levy, CEO of OpenAP, and Travis Scoles, Senior Vice President of Product Management, Advanced Advertising at ViacomCBS, to an Online Talk on how to make TV easier to buy, plan, execute and measure.

During the one-hour-long virtual event, David will present OpenAP’s value proposition to publishers and advertisers, showcase a demo of OpenAP’s newly launched linear SSP and discuss the company’s vision for the future.

Following David’s presentation, Travis Scoles, SVP of Product Management, Advanced Advertising, ViacomCBS, will join a fireside chat along with egta´s Director General Katty Roberfroid, bringing the broadcasters´ perspective to the discussion. Our speakers will focus on how collaborative projects such as OpenAP can transform the way TV is sold, how they fit into publishers' internal sales processes and how they fit with other cross-industry projects on the market.
