The Drum DTA blog version
Wednesday 21st September marked the first Drum Digital Trading Awards USA. The awards, which were held at the Eddison Ballroom in New York City, reward programmatic performance and give recognition to the best in the programmatic and ad-tech industry in the USA.

“The Drum Trading Awards provide long overdue recognition for the creativity, ingenuity and entrepreneurial thinking that is required to navigate the complexities of the programmatic landscape and develop sound targeting, measurement and optimization strategies. These awards generate excitement and appreciation for the discipline and the unique skill set that it demands.  The inaugural round of entries showcased a diverse group of talent from across the branding and DR spectrum. They demonstrated a wide range of trading sophistication, with many entries setting a high standard for future award classes. I expect these awards to pick up momentum over the coming years as the industry looks to celebrate the central role that digital trading plays in modern digital campaigns.” Chairman of the judging panel, Benjamin Dick, Director at the IAB
