In one of the biggest events of the year concerning all things mobile in Barcelona, there were a number of announcements and insights – so for those that were unable to attend the event, here are some of the talked about subjects in which we encountered.
“Wearables” is now a hot topic, the event was dominated by watches, VR headsets and other related products, so this gave a huge insight into the future of wearable technology.
Another popular subject was mobile payments. With Apple having already started their rollout, Samsung are also hot on the trail to incorporate an easy to use payment solution for consumers. With other known payment providers including PayPal, Visa and similar looking at mobile as a payment channel, paying for items or transferring money via our mobile device does not seem that far away.
Of course, being in Barcelona had plenty of fantastic networking events to choose from and a chance to catch up with industry peers and to meet new acquaintances at some great locations. One thing that was noticeable, the number of agencies and marketers in attendance is increasing year-on-year, meaning attending was certainly beneficial for Splicky and we shall certainly be attending next year.

It is estimated by 2017, Advertisers will spend over $59.67 billion (U.S. dollars) on mobile advertising worldwide. Our chart visualises the past and future growth per year from 2010 to 2017 and as you can see, the upward trend shows no sign of stagnating. In fact, the worldwide spend is expected to grow even further as more Advertisers shift a significant portion of their marketing budget to mobile.

Splicky is directly integrated with Celtra which allows Advertisers and Agencies access to a single platform for streamlined ad creation, performance optimised serving and consolidating reporting with common metrics across all screens using rich media and video.
As of today, Splicky has officially been certified to run on the Mopub Private Marketplace which operates the world’s largest real-time bidding (RTB) exchange for mobile in-app ads. A big thanks to the fantastic MoPub team for working closely with our “Smooth” Tech Team to enable this important feature and functionality to become available to our Advertisers.
Private Marketplace (PMP) allows Publishers to offer their premium inventory in a much smaller auction environment. The benefit for Advertisers, is that premium inventory can be accessed
with significantly less competition.
A PMP benefits all parties – Publishers can open-up their inventory in a much controlled environment and gives them more flexibility in terms of what Advertisers can access their Ad space.
This is essential when (for example) Publishers demand brand-safe only Advertisers.
For Advertisers, the ability to access inventory programmatically in a non-competitive environment is a huge advantage, especially when it comes to premium traffic.
As Splicky continues to evolve, we are extremely excited to now include a PMP for Advertiser wanting to access premium inventory with our Mobile Demand Side Platform (DSP).
