‘I have had first-hand experience of The Drum Digital Trading Awards programme in the UK, so when I heard it was coming to APAC it wasn’t a difficult decision to get involved as a partner.  The programme is much bigger than just a one off event – it’s a six month campaign consisting of content, social and live events, so as a partner it offers incredible value.  Any serious initiative that is centred around promoting the programmatic sector, is definitely one I want to support.’
