    Data on UK podcasting demographic / listeners / audience Last year’s Podcast Show saw the birth of a first-of-its-kind study on UK podcast consumption, Edison Podcast Metrics UK, which uncovered the region’s first show ranker. This year, Gabriel Soto, Senior Director at Edison, will invoke the same study to demonstrate a never-before-seen profile of UK podcast listeners. Who is listening, how are they doing it, what are they listening to, and how does it compare to US consumption? The same school of insights that have fueled the understanding and growth of the US podcast market for the past 18 years will be revealed for the UK podcast listener in this keynote address. The presentation is a must-see if you seek to understand what opportunities lie ahead for UK podcasters.

    Sponsorships were the first form of podcast monetisation and they remain the first thing advertisers think of when they hear ‘podcast advertising’. However, given their nature, sponsorships do not naturally scale. Acast has been hard at work solving this problem, building industry-leading workflow products for advertisers and creators. Hear how we did it, and how we’re looking to do the same for podcasting’s extended channels in this session!

    Podcasting was once a niche medium, but major advertisers are now clamouring to get in on the action with big budgets. However, they demand the same level of planning, targeting, buying, and measurement they get from other digital channels. Enter adtech - the driving force behind programmatic advertising, automation, and advanced targeting solutions.

    In this panel, we'll explore how adtech can revolutionise podcasting, enabling creators to tap into unprecedented growth opportunities. With insights from a recent market survey, we'll dive into:

    - Programmatic executions and automation techniques, including self-serve

    - Local vs. international targeting strategies

    - Cutting-edge measurement approaches

    Join us as we debate whether podcasting should adapt to mainstream adtech or blaze its own trail, offering innovative approaches that could raise the bar across all channels.

    For the third year running, podcast advertising failed to cross the $2 billion mark. And to make matters worse advertising growth stagnated to a single digit number in 2023. So what is stopping the anticipated exponential growth in podcast advertising? Are advertisers beginning to question the effectiveness and ROI from podcast advertising?

    The dirty secrets of podcasting are that a download does not equal a listen and a listen does not mean anyone heard your advert because more likely than not they just skipped forward as soon as they heard it start. However podcast companies still use these out dated podcasting 1.0 metrics to illicit payment in full from advertisers, with no assurity that their advert was even heard. Like the Emperors new clothes, no one wants to say it but did anyone actual hear your advert. Where’s the proof?

    Podcasting 2.0 has evolved to offer new features and metrics such as Time Listened, Percent Completed and Value Paid to measure with 100% accuracy if your advert was heard and best of all, if it’s not, you don’t pay.
