SpotX’s inaugural Media Owner Advisory Board (MOAB) was formed in early 2019, with the goal of bringing together respected industry leaders to address critical ecosystem challenges and opportunities. SpotX’s “MOAB” meets quarterly to provide a forum for ongoing strategic cooperation on specific topics that have been chosen through group consensus. The board convened in person for the first time in May of this year and discussed insights, challenges and best practices for executing and scaling Programmatic Guaranteed and audience targeted campaigns.

The Media Owner Advisory Board will also go on an annual retreat in Q3, with this year’s signature event being held in Sea Island, Georgia. The retreat will offer opportunities for extended working sessions and deeper collaboration, while leaving plenty of time for networking and leisure activities.

Media Owner Advisory Board will open up membership at the beginning of each calendar year, please reach out to Matt McLeggon with any inquiries.
