Facebook & Google have created an advertising duopoly predicted to wipe out smaller adtech companies & continue the decline of VC funding in adtech. Brands spend millions every year collecting consumer data they should rightfully own & be able to use while Google & Facebook are profiting. This panel explores why competition reform is needed for the overall ecosystem, what makes data consolidation bad for adtech and how brands can own their own data to elevate the consumer experience.
