Help understand what is driving Digital Video adoption - Survey

Digital video advertising showed a significant growth of 35.8% in 2015 and is driving brand spend into online (IAB Europe AdEx Benchmark 2015 report). However there remains little insight into the current adoption, strategies and attitudes towards the format. IAB Europe invites brand advertisers, agencies and publishers to share their thoughts on digital video advertising in this survey to elevate understanding and identify areas for guidance to help with strategy development.

Please spare 5 minutes to take this survey on Digital Video adoption, the results of which will be shared out via the IAB network.
