About

AdMonsters started in 1999 with our first Publisher Forum - back then these were known simply as AdMonsters - and even though we now put on events covering a number of different topics in the ad operations space this remains our flagship conference for online publishers.

The focus of this year's Publisher Forum is leadership. Through adopting new technologies, mastering burgeoning channels and seeking out fresh revenue streams, ad operations professionals are building their way up to that long-desired chair at the executive table. During three days of in-depth peer-to-peer discussions, attendee will forge the path to becoming digital strategists at the forefront of their companies' revenue plans.


Example topics include the strategic role of Ad Operations, audience targeting, yield, revenue and inventory management, emerging platforms, organizational structure, data monetization and creative executions.

FOCUS 
AdMonsters is focused 100% on online ad operations and technology, nothing else. You know what you're getting and who you'll be alongside at AdMonsters - other leaders from the online operations community. Everyone at an AdMonsters conference is there because they either work directly in ops or because ops is critical to their work.

QUALITY 
At AdMonsters, there's no trade show floor, and no booth to man all day – what you get is personal introductions directly to those whose influence is critical in the vendor selection process. AdMonsters participants represent the largest and deepest group of senior ad operations expertise in the world. Whether you are just entering the market or are an established solution provider, there is no other forum that can offer the same opportunity for exposure, discourse, and feedback.

COMMUNITY 
The first thing we hear from first-time participants is almost always "I'm so happy to meet other people who understand what I do for a living!" AdMonsters seeks to create a meaningful and long-lasting professional community that benefits all participants. Our goal is for AdMonsters participants to leave with a new set of friends and a notebook full of answers – not to mention some new questions as well!
