In a significant milestone for Membrana Media, we have become an official member of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) in three countries: Ukraine, Brazil, and now South Africa. This partnership brings numerous benefits to Membrana Media and highlights our commitment to industry standards and best practices. In this blog post, we will provide an overview of the organization's role in the digital advertising landscape and explore the benefits that Membrana Media will bring to publishers being an IAB member.
Understanding the Concept of Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB)
The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) is an influential global trade association that empowers the media and marketing industries to thrive in the digital economy. Founded in 1996, the IAB provides guidance, education, and support to its members while promoting the development of sustainable and innovative advertising solutions.
The organization primarily focuses on standardization issues, developing technical standards, establishing rules of the game, and striving to make the digital advertising industry more secure. They work towards reducing fakes, fraud, double standards, and manipulations.
Despite the fact that the documents and standards developed by the IAB are of a recommendatory nature, the organization has gained such influence worldwide that any decision issued by an IAB branch is mandatory for a civilized market player.
