The Internet Media Observatory's primary objective is to explore the Digital Media market, both advertising sponsored and paid content, paying particular attention to the more innovative components, for example, Social Networks, Online Video, Mobile, Native and Programmatic advertising. The Observatory endeavours to be a point of reference for the entire Media sector in understanding the multiple innovation phenomena in the digital world, promoting an open comparison between stakeholders in the industry and informing decision makers of the numerous opportunities available, with the ultimate goal of supporting the development of the market.
The Observatory's planned activities for 2019-2020 are:
- Two workshops to thoroughly examine some vertical themes, with the participation of Research Partners and Sponsor, as well as marketers (digital manager, brand manager, marketing manager) of main Italian investor companies:
