The Internet Advertising Bureau UK (IAB UK) is a trade association for online and mobile advertising in the United Kingdom, founded in 1997. It promotes growth and best practice for advertisers, agencies, and media owners.
Richard Eyre has been the Chairman of IAB UK since March 2003. In 2013 he was awarded the Advertising Association's Mackintosh Medal. In January 2014 he was appointed a CBE for services to advertising and the media in the New Years Honours.
The IAB PwC Digital Adspend study has tracked the growth of the online and mobile advertising industry since 1997. In 2016, it was reported that adspend on mobile display had overtaken that on PC for the first time.
The IAB holds two flagship events, Mobile Engage and Engage, in addition to research breakfasts, workshops, seminars, and other conferences throughout the year. In 2013, the IAB's Engage event won an award for In House Event of the Year at the UK Event Awards. In 2014, Mobile Engage won Corporate Event of the Year at the same awards.
In May 2015 it was announced that it would be the last ever Mobile Engage. From 2016 there will be an annual Leadership Summit bringing together senior industry leaders for discussions.
The IAB established a regulatory department in 2008 with the appointment of Nick Stringer to help members develop best practice guidelines and participate in policy dialogues with the Government, the EU, and consumer groups.
