Reining in the Data Flood

1500 Broadway at 43rd (entrance on corner of Broadway and 43rd)

This event is AT CAPACITY (thanks!), and we will not be offering on-site registrations.

Thanks to header bidding and other programmatic advances, the number of demand sources a typical publisher employs has skyrocketed. This means a lot more data coming back from a great deal of sources. Managing this inundation of data is only the beginning—getting insight and transparency into performance is a lot tougher. Even still—what else should and could you be doing with that data?

AdMonsters will lead a panel exploring the challenges in reporting—particularly with growing programmatic sources—but also the road forward in data normalization for direct sales, programmatic, and finance.

FAQ

What’s a Meetup?

A Meetup is an informal gathering where digital revenue strategists can network with their peers and join a moderated discussion on a pertinent ad tech topic – consider it a mini-AdMonsters event that's free to attend. Learn how companies like yours are working through challenges and driving revenue while connecting with industry folks you already know or are just meeting. (Who knows? You may find a new bestie!) 

Who can come? If you work for a publisher or agency, you can – and should – join us! Certain service providers may also join depending on topics, sponsors and locations. AdMonsters will vet registration to make sure the audience is mainly pubs and agencies. We'll send you a confirmation email to let you know you're in. Registration Question?
