Programmatic display

The total programmatic ad spend in 2017 was £3.4bn which represents 79% of total UK display digital ad spend with this percentage forecast to rise by to 85% by 2019. By investing in our own agency trading desk we are ideally placed to make sure that all of our clients can trade their display campaigns programmatically through Tomorrow | TTH.

How we see it

The term “Programmatic Advertising” is widely and incorrectly used to describe display advertising. In reality programmatic simply refers to the way that media is bought with display advertising being the first media channel that allows advertisers to deliver media campaigns programmatically.

In the near future, we believe that all media channels will be able to be purchased programmatically including radio, TV, Outdoor and press. The technology is in place for this to happen but the more traditional media industries need to embrace the potential that programmatic buying delivers to advertisers for programmatic advertising to become ubiquitous.
