19. 09. 2018

The annual dmexco fair took place in Cologne on 12th and 13th September. Our team visited the biggest digital marketing fair of Europe again this year and experienced interesting conversations alongside delicious coffee and refreshing sodas at our stand.

This year's motto "Take C.A.R.E." stands for Curiosity, Action, Responsibility and Experience.  This guideline offered a wide range of interesting speeches and discussions that dealt with the most important developments of the industry.

We have summarized the most relevant topics in our best-of:

 

1. GDPR AND EPRIVACY

After the GDPR came into force end of May 2018, the approaching e-Privacy regulation now brings new challenges for the industry. The e-Privacy regulation is intended to regulate any electronic communication and therefore concretize the GDPR within this area. The call for greater privacy protection of individuals poses a massive challenge for advertisers, as the use of cookies will be restricted. In particular, retargeting measures will be challenged.

Our FAQ about the GDPR

 

2. FIRST PARTY DATA AND CROSS DEVICE TRACKING

The GDPR particularly highlights the importance of the correct use of data.  Specifically,  first-party data is gaining more and more relevance for targeting and therefore help creating a consistent experience for users along their customer journey.

User journeys continue to take place on different devices increasingly. Cross-device tracking therefore remains an important and relevant topic for the coming months.

Read our article: This is why Cross-Device Matching is vital for effective Marketing.

 

3. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is still one of the most important topics in digital marketing. This year, however, the focus is not only on its possibilities and risks, but rather on the concrete advantages for advertisers.

The question of the general benefits of AI for marketers is particularly open to debate. AI may provide detailed analyses, but what benefit do marketers gain if employee cannot comprehend these or use to define strategies. The results of AI must become more transparent. Tackling this problem will be one of the challenges for 2019.

Read our article: Limitations of Artificial Intelligence in Marketing.

 

4. BLOCKCHAIN

Blockchain is still a commonly debated topic in the industry. The decentralized system is intended to provide more transparency and security in the digital world, but is currently also causing conflict. Many people see it as a good solution for banking transactions and insurance contracts, but don't really believe it can be used successfully in marketing. The technology is still not developed far enough to show its full potential. The future will show, if and how Blockchain will enforce itself in Marketing.
