Total Video trends

The 2023 edition of TV Key Facts, a combined magazine, database and event, marked a special anniversary for RTL AdAlliance. It’s been exactly 30 years since Freddy Tacheny, former CEO of IP Belgium and COO of RTL Belgium, came up with the idea of presenting the latest international trends in TV – a term we use at RTL Group when talking about Total Video.

The event

During the live event on 7 December 2023, streamed from Groupe M6’s studios in Paris and hosted by TV presenter Louise Ekland, a panel of speakers discussed the most recent insights from RTL AdAlliance’s Total Video study. 

  • Stéphane Coruble, CEO of RTL AdAlliance, emphasised the importance of context and attention for brands and the need for premium content. He highlighted two key aspects of RTL AdAlliance’s future: simplicity and value. Simplifying the access to the global Total Video inventory while bringing value for publishers and clients.

  • Aurélie Brunet de Courssou, Marketing Director at RTL AdAlliance, discussed the current trend of fragmentation and the challenges it poses for measurement. She concluded, nonetheless, that 2024 will be the year of measurement and mentioned Realytics’ BEE solution as a stellar example.
