    Blueprinting the Revenue Operations of Tomorrow

    Effecting change within a large company with a long history may not be a Herculean labor, but it’s certainly not a task for the faint of heart. Fortunately, Amit Chaturvedi was up for the challenge of expanding Turner’s revenue operations to leverage new demand channels for an ever-increasing amount of platforms. In this special keynote, Chaturvedi will detail Turner’s major operations overhaul, while sharing strategies for keeping pace with an ever-changing marketplace… Or maybe even getting ahead of it.

    Augmented Reality: Even Better Than the Real Thing

    Though augmented reality has quickly become a larger part of actual reality, we’re only scratching the surface of potential use cases for the technology—especially when it comes to digital advertising. Skignz Cofounder Si Brown takes us on whirlwind tour of the current coolest applications of augmented reality and expounds on how all publishers can leverage the technology in their monetization efforts.

Don’t take our word for it. Over 98% of attendees leave with tangible learnings that they can apply in their job:

“Best event in our space. All Ad Ops people should attend, it is actionable and the only place where you can interact with your people for hours on end.”

“This is a great experience to meet other people in your same industry who are going through similar issues. It is an opportunity to learn about new solutions as well as contribute to the community.”

“It’s the one place to go and collaborate with other publishers. The learning environment is invaluable.”

“AdMonsters Publisher Forums is the place where your career takes off.”

Who's Attending



Who attends 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
