On May 15 the IAB and PWC announced that the 2007 Internet Advertising Revenue Report shows internet advertising revenues in the U.S. continued to soar.

“This achievement is testament to the continued vitality of interactive” said Randall Rothenberg, president and CEO of the IAB.

On May 22 Campaign Setup Best Practices was released as part of a long term initiative designed to improve operational efficiency in interactive advertising.

“This document is instrumental in helping online agencies and publishers increase the efficiency of the online ad buying process which is a real win for our clients,” said Will Restrepo, campaign management supervisor of Horizon Interactive, and one of a number of agency representatives who participated in the creation of the document.
