The Programme Board of IAB Forum 2023 announces a call for papers for the next edition of the most prominent conference on the online industry in Poland. This time the event will take place on May 30 and 31, 2023 in Warsaw. 
We are extending the application deadline by February 13 this year!

This year’s theme of IAB Forum is:

2023 says: Call!
What strategy for “interesting times”?

Recent years have seen waves of events causing significant changes in the world. Living and working in the new normal has become a challenge but certainly not the last we’ll have to face in the near future. The perspective of economic recession and growing unemployment, the cost of operations or the low consumption rate are just some of the factors that affect business and the industry in general. The war taking place right next door, so to speak, is an additional concern.

This is yet another test for the marketing, communications, creative industries as well as for the creators of tools for the digital world. We’ve learned to cope with change and transformation on steroids. The industry’s growth has accelerated, digital spending has surpassed TV, and hybrid work has opened up a range of new opportunities.

In 2023, let’s say it out loud: call! We’ll see if we have become resilient enough in the areas of business, strategy, technology, media, interpersonal relations in recent years and if we are managing this energy the right way. We’ll talk honestly about what has turned out to be a typical hype or a catchy buzzword, and what has actually brought long-term change, had a positive impact on business, and helps the online industry grow. About what we think will work in these “interesting times”.

This is what we will be discussing during the IAB Forum 2023. Would you like to take part in this discussion? Read the brief and fill out the application form.
