Wednesday, Aug 28, 2019, 09:30 am - 04:45 pm

Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld, Lotus room 5-7, 22nd floor, 999/9 Rama I Road, , Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Thailand







IAB Southeast Asia and India, in collaboration with DAAT, are delivering a one day masterclass, featuring regional industry experts, who will share their hands on experience and learnings on how to deliver brand strategies that bring real business results in Thailand and the wider region. 

With digital ad spend continuing to grow in Thailand at over 16% and expected to equal TV spend in 3-5 years, training is essential to career development and continued business success in digital:

  • A study of 2500 businesses done by Association for Talent Development, found that companies that offer thorough training had more than twice the amount of income per employee over firms that offered less training.
  • According to the Future of Jobs Reports 2018 by the World Economic Forum, 51% of the workforce in Thailand needs to go through some form of reskilling. 
  • Training can be a key differentiator between companies competing for talent. Employees want to work for organisations that provide both personal and professional development.  

The masterclass is held in conjunction with DAAT Day. Attendees are highly recommended to attend both sessions to complement local expertise with regional perspectives.


  • Learn about how to put together a measurement framework which allows you to track business results.
  • Brand safety encompasses many different aspects but do you know what part supply, technology, agencies and brands have to play in order to deliver brand safe experiences? 
  • Hear how customer behaviour is changing and what video platforms are doing to put their content into consumers hands in Thailand. 
  • Discover the power of creative, data and optimisation to cut through and be noticed by consumers. 
  • Programmatic is growing year on year across the region, what do you need to know about supply and demand to be able to add value to your organisation
