Each year since 2009, IAB has brought small online publishers to the nation’s capital.
Small publishers have joined IAB to network, learn about industry best practices and meet with members of the U.S. Congress and their staffs. This team has spoken with their representatives to give a fuller understanding of the challenges facing online entrepreneurs and the impact that legislation and regulations may have on their businesses.
Since most of these smaller digital companies are dependent on advertising revenue, the policies that impact digital advertising have a direct link to their livelihoods. By convening members of IAB’s Long Tail Alliance, the IAB has shown policymakers the real difference that these small businesses are making in the field.
