Many of our sponsorship opportunities are sold out for AdMonsters European Publishers Forum IX. However, we still have three Gold Sponsorships available. If you are interested in sponsoring this or other events in Europe or North American, details are available on our sponsorship page. Alternatively, you can send us an email here
We typically sell out at all levels of sponsorship; sponsor selection is therefore competitive, and it is usually the case that we do not have enough sponsorship openings for the number of interested sponsors. We select sponsors based primarily on best fit with our audience. The pricing outlined on our web site is a guideline based on past events; we reserve the right to adjust pricing based on competitive demand.
If you are interested in sponsorship of this event, please complete a sponsorship inquiry. Priority (but not guaranteed selection) will be given to those who make their firm interest known soonest.
The conference format for Publisher Forum EU IX will run two full days, beginning with a Monday morning and ending with a dinner on Tuesday evening. The majority of the agenda is comprised of member-led sessions and breakouts covering a wide variety of relevant topics; some examples include ad serving technology, inventory management, organizational structure, business process automation, ad operations policies, rich/streaming media, and case studies. Further details will become available as we approach the dates of the conference. Please see past conference agendas for examples: AdMonsters Europe VIII AdMonsters Europe VII — AdMonsters Europe VI
AdMonsters is very happy to be joined by James Bilefield, CEO of openads.org, who will lead the keynote session at AdMonsters Europe IX. James will be discussing the current state of the market and possible impacts of the recent spate of mergers and acquisitions in the ad operations space. We look forward to an excellent opening session.
James is CEO of Openads, the developer of free, open source ad serving software used by more than 20,000 online publishers in 140 countries around the world. Under his leadership, Openads is disrupting the global online advertising industry by offering publishers a simple, independent and reliable way to make more money from online advertising.
Before joining Openads in July 2007, James was one of the early executive team members at Skype, the global internet communications company that allows people to make free, unlimited, superior quality voice calls. At Skype he served first as vice president of global business development, and was later appointed general manager of European operations, Skype’s largest region.
Prior to joining Skype in November 2004, James spent five years at Yahoo!, where he served as managing director of consumer and network services across Europe. In this role, he ran the regional communication, broadband, community and content businesses. He also co-led Yahoo!’s €475 million acquisition of Kelkoo, Europe’s leading online comparison shopping service, in March 2004.
