We went all out this year with a monthly event. We weren't sure if it would be possible to ramp-up the frequency whilst retaining our quality and communities attention but 2019 has proven a huge success. As we close out the year, we wanted to make sure that we recognise the continued support of our members as it would not be possible without you. It's been a pleasure and a privilege to help this event grow and we can't wait to see what we can achieve in 2020!

Meetups have also spawned across the globe this year including Melbourne's first event in October. https://demuxed.com/events
Stay tuned Auckland - we're coming for you next!

This month will be a shorter one with a couple of highlight presentations and then we will head out to celebrate the holidays and simply thank you for the support.

*Ten Years of iview*
Bruce Collier- ABC, iview Senior Video Product Manager
Julian Lloyd-Phillips - ABC, Engineering Manager
From Bananas to Peppa Pig and now Bluey. Bruce has offered to share a journey at ABC from streaming over flash websites the explosion of mobile devices and now the diversity of the iview platform today

*Header Bidding in Video with SSAI/DAI*
David Springall, Yospace Founder & CTO (UK)
David will share learnings in implementing header bidding over a SSAI environment. Header bidding for video has been rolling out across the past months in Australia with popular DSPs. Header Bidding promises to more democratically auction your inventory, work around limitations of the standard Ad Server waterfall to create higher CPMs.

*Demuxed Highlights*
A few syd members were lucky enough to attend Demuxed and will share their highlights from this fantastic event.

Food and drink at this event will be provided Yospace
