The online advertising ecosystem has gotten very complicated lately. Over the last couple of years, an alphabet soup of new technologies–DSPs, RTBs, SSPs– have come to market along with data aggregators, buy-side trading desks, and a multitude of other systems. The promise is that with enhanced audience targeting and by putting the purchasing power directly in the hands of the agencies and advertisers, display can begin to benefit from the same scalability and growth that Google has demonstrated in the search market. However, the bottom line is that each of these systems requires operational and technical expertise as well as a high-level understanding of what they mean for publisher, network, and agency revenue. Now, more than ever, ops is essential.
AdMonsters brings its decade of experience designing, curating, and delivering unique and uniquely valuable conferences to this new and rapidly changing landscape. CTOs, VPs of operations, and other leaders from across the online media landscape will come together to tackle the big issues and offer pragmatic and tactical solutions to their peers at OPS Markets.
The topics discussed at this event will focus on connecting the pieces of this complex puzzle in order to maxmize revenue. From working with 3rd party data providers to verification services, the focus will be on collaboration and sharing innovative solutions to problems faced by the operations teams from all players across the market. Discussions of best practices will lead to better understanding from all sides and will benefit all by driving profitability. Specific topics will include ad exchanges, data exchanges, client services, reporting, real time bidding, demand side platforms and agency trading desks.

Who should attend
The Network Ops Forum is designed to address the specific challenges of those responsible for managing advertising networks.
This event is not just for networks, it is for publishers and agencies as well.
Networks are at the forefront of such issues as real time bidding, demand side platforms and the evolution of audience and data-driven advertising. Networks must have very efficient operations departments to deal with potentially hundreds of clients running on hundreds if not thousands of sites. Networks must be on top of privacy issues as regulation threatens their bread and butter.
In other words, many of the things publisher ad operations leaders must know about, network ad operations leaders are already doing.
If you are trying to launch or maintain a vertical network, this event is for you.
If you are trying to unscramble the multitude of acronyms from RTB to DSPs, this event is for you.
If you want to know how agencies are changing the way they buy, this event is for you.
The Ad Operations Revolution
The ad operations role is undergoing a sea of change:
– Huge influence in the ad ecosystem is shifting to math-driven decisions and exchange auctions
– Significant ad dollars and value have shifted from offline to online to contextual to audience targeted
– The folks holding the purse strings are increasingly looking for real numbers to back up spend
These trends are all leading in the same direction: the role of ad operations is proving to be the lynchpin in the successful strategy and execution of any business playing in the world of digital media. In the past, it was the sales executives, creative types and the account managers that owned and primarily influenced the strategy and success of a campaign. Now, it’s the ad ops manager that suddenly finds him or herself in the driver’s seat. What does this mean for all the AdMonsters in the room?
