The Drum Digital Trading Awards APAC are back for 2018 giving recognition to those who make the client’s life easier and their programmatic media buying more efficient.

As ever, this isn’t just a gong show. This is just the start of an editorial program and calendar of events culminating on the awards night in Singapore, showing The Drum’s commitment to programmatic trading.

We encourage the industry to get involved, take ownership of the discussion around programmatic ultimately help set industry standards. 

In year 1 of the programme we majored on the themes of clarity and transparency in the vendor space. We set the industry the challenge of improving its image, to work together to build a better market.

In our second year in Asia Pacific we aim to focus on inspiring brand confidence in data-led advertising, moving the needle to encourage investment from both direct response and performance spend, as well as brand spend.

Entries are open to anyone in the digital media/trading eco-system who can show that they offer a high value service or technology. Including; advertisers, publishers, agencies, trading desks, technology companies etc.
