NEW YORK, May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 3rd a new conference entirely dedicated to combating advertising fraud, including viewability and security issues, is going to be hosted by AdExchanger, an integrated media company devoted to the data-driven, digital marketing space.  Clean Ads I/O will bring together the top leaders from across the digital advertising spectrum – marketers, agencies, publishers, and technology providers – to focus on the specific challenges associated within digital advertising, as well as actionable solutions to make it cleaner, safer and better for brands, publishers and audiences.

Advertising fraud is costing online marketers billions of dollars per year, and has become one of the most important and talked about subjects in online advertising as a result.

Hundreds of digital marketing and media executives will come together at Clean Ads I/O in New York City, to discuss industry-wide, actionable solutions to combat ad fraud and create greater transparency in digital advertising, immediately and for the long-term.

Specific topics covered at Clean Ads I/O will include:

  • The Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) stance on native advertising
  • How programmatic creates opportunities for ad fraud
  • AdExchanger Research on cross-device advertising challenges and opportunities
  • Creating transparency across the industry
  • The use of data, science and technology to bolster security
  • Best practices for brands trying to combat ad fraud

"Marketers hear a lot about advertising fraud but the information tends to be too abstract," said John Ebbert, Publisher and Executive Editor of AdExchanger.  "Knowing this is a $6 billion problem each year for our industry doesn't lead to actionable solutions. However, understanding how ad fraud directly impacts companies and what the best technologies are to prevent it will."
