DataXu’s own James Sampson, General Manager & VP APAC as well as myself, Matthew Joyce, Country Manager Australia and New Zealand, presented a topic that created great interaction amongst the marketers in the room, titled, “Understanding Today’s Cross Device Consumer.”  This was a conversation that went far beyond just the ability to ‘buy’ across screens, but how consumers can be measured and targeted by marketers at the right time and on the right device during the consumer journey.
