A guide to media accountability in the era of data abundance

We all know there’s an abundance of audience measurement data available – but how much of it is trusted, accountable and transparent?

In this sea of data abundance, we need beacons of the industry to keep us safe from the rocks of unreliable data, opaque data and misinformation, to help us chart our passage through to safe waters. 

Join us to hear different viewpoints – including agencies, brands and media owners – on how JIC data is used to create and measure effective campaigns, and the importance of joint industry oversight of the research underpinning media.
