research

Other than our industry roundtables, we currently don’t undertake any in-depth proprietary research, but we are open to your suggestions for an industry-wide study that could be sponsored.

Email us to discuss your research ideas.

industry roundtables

The invitation-only, moderated industry roundtables with brand marketers and agencies are intended to help raise senior level understanding of the power of digital, mobile, and social media marketing in Asia Pacific, and assist in their mission to uncover opportunities and issues that will help deepen collaboration between publishers, advertisers, and agencies.

bespoke research projects

We realise that there are topics of relevance to you that we could co-produce to give you a neutral platform perspective. We can also investigate securing additional sponsorship from other corporates on topics that benefit the industry as a whole should you not wish to bear the full cost.
