The Internet generation, and how you market to them, matters massively to your publication’s success. The digital reader is the most marketed-to human that has ever lived. She can smell inauthenticity a mile away; traditional marketing techniques simply don’t work on her. Rather than approach the Internet Generation as scientists tapping on the glass, publishers and brands need to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them, respecting the enormous influence they have on, well, pretty much everything...

Session Type


Who attends the Publisher Forum?


AdMonsters Publisher Forums are designed specifically for digital strategists and operations and technology leaders at online publishers, content creators and mobile application developers. AdMonsters reviews and approves each individual participant to ensure a conversation amongst a community of senior peers in digital media.

What should I expect at the Publisher Forum?


Most sessions are open to attendees only, except for Sponsor Workshops, Panels, and Networking Sessions.

The Publisher Forum conference takes place over three days, beginning with a cocktail reception and dinner on Sunday evening and ending at 5 PM Wednesday. The agenda includes:

  • 2-3 keynotes by industry visionaries
  • Sessions led by ad ops leaders who are also part of the AdMonsters community 
  • Breakouts covering a wide variety of focused and ad-ops relevant topics

The 30-60 minute attendee sessions include presentations, round-table discussions and case studies on a wide variety of relevant topics such as: ad serving technology, inventory management, organizational structure, business process automation, ad operations policies, rich/streaming media and more.

Why should I register early?

  • Two reasons: The price for Publisher Forums goes up as we get closer to the event date
  • We always sell out since we limit the number of attendees to keep the conversations open and flowing
