We were a proud sponsor of American Business Media's Business Information and Media Summit this past week. This B2B centered conference pushed us to find out the current status of programmatic advertising in the B2B market. While it has been said that B2B publishers are not warm to actively adopting programmatic, we were motivated to uncover just how much adoption of programmatic advertising has occurred this past year. We shared some fresh data with BIMS, and now our blog. Let's take a look:
From January 2015- September 2015:
