Tomorrow, podcasters and media buyers will congregate in New York City for the Podcast Upfront Showcase 2015. Sponsored by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), this will be an opportunity for media buyers to gain exposure to a wide variety of podcasts. For podcasters it is an opportunity to gain broad exposure to agencies representing big brands with large advertising budgets.
