The Most Relevant Conference for Digital Media & Revenue Ops Leaders

November 3-6, 2019 | Scottsdale

Sessions that speak to your challenges. Peers that speak your language. 



  • Amanda Martin

    Amanda Martin

    VP of Enterprise Partnerships

    Pubs and Agencies: Strange Bedfellows, Strategic Partners
    Monday, Nov. 4 @ 9:10 am

    It is a time of great disturbance in programmatic. Google’s foray into first-price auctions and the appearance of unified auctions have ruffled publisher revenue efforts. Browser and regulatory third-party cookie crackdowns are stripping the targeting goldmine. In this uncertain moment, publishers can find an unlikely ally in agencies—who are facing similar challenges amidst wholly different pressures. In this candid conversation, Goodway Group’s Amanda Martin will detail the many ways publishers and agencies can team up as they face consolidation, walled gardens, and a cookieless future.

SCAM ALERT: BEWARE OF OUTSIDE ROOM OFFERS. Fraudulent companies—most notably scammers known as Exhibitors Housing Services (EHS) and CBS International—are known to present themselves as an official conference hotel booking partner. These groups are in no way affiliated with AdMonsters and their claims of having access to rooms are false.  The only way to reserve a room at AdMonsters is through our registration site.

Who attends Publisher Forum?

AdMonsters Publisher Forums are designed specifically for digital strategists, data scientists, revenue, operations & 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 1:00 PM Wednesday. The agenda includes:

  • 2-3 keynotes by industry visionaries
  • Interactive sessions led by industry leaders who are also part of the AdMonsters community
  • Breakouts covering a wide variety of focused revenue, data 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: yield management, first party auctions, ad serving technology, inventory management, organizational structure, data science, business process automation, 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
