Virtual Publisher Forum

December 8-10, 2020

Sessions that solve your challenges, peers that speak your language: Publisher Forum and Ops, combined into one virtual mega-event for the entire Revenue Ops community!

About

PUBLISHER FORUM + OPS + YOU

There’s no sugarcoating it: 2020 has been a struggle. But, in order for our businesses and careers to survive and even thrive, we all must look towards 2021 with optimism and fresh perspective. That’s why we created PubForum+.  

AdMonsters remain steadfast in our commitment to bring the entire Ad Tech community together annually, as we usually do this at our flagship Ops event in NYC. But, even in a year without live events, we still need peer connection and idea-sharing across the Buy- and Sell-sides. We’ll deliver that to a screen near you—in the forum of the first-ever PubForum+! 

This event is for everyone in the advertising-driven media org. Attending bears no travel expenses or time on a plane. Your entire team can benefit from the Publisher Forum experience from the comfort and safety of home or office. 

The AdMonsters team is hard at work producing another virtual event that will knock your socks off. Each aspect of an AdMonsters event will be transformed for the digital environment: Keynotes and breakouts, small-group workshops, 1-to-1 matchmaking, even virtual activities and happy hours.  

I invite you to register today. We hope you’ll help spread the word to others who can benefit from these conversations. Send it to your team, invite your boss, share it on your company slack, please post to LinkedIn. There’s never been a better time to champion the mission-critical importance of Ad Operations within the media organization.  

I hope to “see” you there. 

Viva La Virtual!

Matchmaking

To keep tickets low-cost to all publishers, brands and agencies, the event is sponsored by a group of savvy technology providers in the advertising industry. 

As a part of attending this event, each attendee can themself available for 1-4 networking appointments with technology companies you are interested in, and who might be interested in meeting you. Each matched meeting you take earns you a $50 Amazon gift card. 

How does it work?

Each appointment lasts 15-30 minutes, and will be pre-scheduled. Appointments take place any time in the 4 business days after the virtual event. 

Appointments will take place on video conference. Meetings will be facilitated by AdMonsters, but specific meeting times will be chosen by YOU to suit you calendar. Once you select your time, the appointment is firm! 

How are attendees matched? 

Every attendee will be asked to fill out a pre-event survey. You can identify either the technologies that most interest, specific companies that interest you, or both. Sponsors also have the chance to identify the attendees/attending companies that interest them.

AdMonsters makes the matches, sends out a Doodle scheduling tool for you to select your meeting times, and then keeps track of how many meetings have taken place. 

What’s in it for me?

For every appointment you take (up to 4), you earn a reward of a $50 Amazon gift card, up to $200. All while learning about companies that can help make your life easier. Pretty sweet deal, eh? 

Note: you must be selected by a sponsoring company in order to be matched. Attendees will be eligible for the Amazon gift cards if selected/matched. Gift cards are distributed electronically after meetings have occurred.
