Conversational display ads are basically built out to allow users to click on a link that drives them not to a product website or landing page, but to a live chat or messenger conversation with the brand (via Facebook messenger for instance), thereby allowing brands to interact with interested further customers and drive more purchases once they click on an ad (as opposed to just passing them off to a landing page or purchase page).
