TikTok, Tubi, Roku, Hulu and more have signed on for virtual IAB NewFronts presentations in June to highlight the surging streaming video industry.

The presentations, which will take place between June 22-26, will showcase data and trends behind the streaming surge, streaming video and audio content programming and the future of advertising.

“NewFronts is the only marketplace that brings together the entire ecosystem and looks at content, consumers, and technology as equally important,” said IAB CEO Randall Rothenberg in a statement. “Social distancing isn’t stopping industry leaders from coming together online to develop relationships that ignite collaboration, strategic discussion, and generate unique ideas to set the stage for business to thrive as the economy comes back to life.”
