Angela Mills Wade, Owner of Europe Analytica and Executive Director of the European Publishers Council

Speaker: Paul Jordan, Managing Director & Owner at Blue Motion Consulting

In the opening keynote, Paul Jordan will delve into the intricate yet profound relationship between advertising and privacy in today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape. As consumers become increasingly concerned about their online privacy, the advertising industry faces new and pressing challenges in upholding individuals’ privacy rights.

Mr. Jordan will share his insights on this complex issue, exploring the latest developments in privacy regulations, emerging technologies, and evolving consumer attitudes. He will address the challenges and opportunities that arise when balancing the need for data-driven advertising with the importance of safeguarding consumer privacy.

Moderator: Conor Murray, Director of Regulatory and Public Affairs at egta


Ionel Naftanaila, Director of Programme Development at EDAA

Rita Wezenbeek, Director Platforms Policy & Enforcement at DG CONNECT


Our panel of experts will share broader perspectives that uniquely unravel the complexities placed by the Digital Services Act of delivering consumer-facing transparency across the digital advertising industry. Our esteemed speakers shall detail compliance and liability of those in-scope of the DSA, yet also the implications thrust upon their business partners and advertising supply chain. This debate covers something far greater than the compliance obligations of online platforms: it is all about deepening trust between advertisers and consumers while ensuring the development of a vibrant, and sustainable European advertising environment for all stakeholders.

Since the early discussions that led to the adoption and implementation of the Digital Services Act, EDAA has been working in order to identify a credible solution for the new online transparency requirements provided for in the new piece of legislation. Today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the EDAA’s Advanced Advertising Transparency Programme (AATP)!

Speaker: Rob van Eijk, Managing Director for Europe at The Future of Privacy Forum

In his keynote speech, Mr. van Eijk will explore the critical connection between ethics and technology, in particular in relation to the online advertising industry. In an era of emerging technologies, businesses are reshaping their tech and policies to meet evolving expectations in a dynamic landscape.
