David Tiltman, VP Content, WARC, comments: “Around the world, there’s a rising concern among marketers that traditional forms of advertising are not driving brand growth in the ways they have come to expect. They are facing the challenges of attracting and holding consumers’ attention in a fragmented media environment. They see the rise of ad blocking and the mounting problems within digital communications. And these issues are relevant in MENA.
