IAB Europe establishes the Brand Advertising Committee (BAC)

Branding, Digital & Media

nugg.ad, European leading specialist in online targeting and brand advertising, welcomes the founding of the Brand Advertising Committee (BAC) through IAB Europe.

A strong coalition made up of publishers, agencies, advertisers and ad tech as well as market research companies from across Europe, the Committee has the task to establish branding standards for digital marketing.

“Standardization of premium ad formats, general KPIs for brand campaigns and standard processes together with a definition of brand and audience metrics should develop the internet into an even better environment for brand campaigns”, IAB Europe informs.

As a large-scale initiative for brand adverting is needed and online already surpassed TV as lead advertising medium in UK and Germany, the task is to provide standardized KPIs for the medium.

Karim H. Attia, CEO at nugg.ad, alongside Alain Heureux, IAB Europe President, acts as the spokesman of the committee and is calling for the European online industry to participate.

Big brands have found the Internet an excellent place to advertise. This is something that we at nugg.ad have been nurturing and developing for some time. (…) The IAB Brand Advertising Committee will ensure that brands will finally have more than the current performance metric of CTRs as a KPI; giving brands a more sustainable and successful indicator to work with and develop from.

Karim H. Attia,

CEO nugg.ad.
