We’d like to think that AdMonsters’ virtual events have helped keep media businesses thriving during this year of unprecedented events. As our industry (and our world) begins to see the light at the end of the tunnel, 2021 will again be a year full of change and opportunity to navigate. We hope you’ll join us for a virtual conference that will help you get your bearings for the year ahead. 

To keep AdMonsters events accessible, complimentary tickets are available for the first 1000 qualified, vetted Advertising & Rev Ops professionals who apply for event registration. 

The AdMonsters team is hard at work producing a 2021 virtual event that will continue to connect and educate you. Each aspect of a Publisher Forum 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 join us, and to send your people! 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.

We hope you’ll help spread the word to others who can benefit from these conversations. Forward to your team, invite your boss, share it on your company slack, post to LinkedIn. Together, let’s champion the mission-critical importance of Ad Operations within the media organization.

I hope to see you there. For a bit longer… Viva La Virtual!

Virtual Venue

Hosted in the HopIn Online Venue for Virtual Events

Virtual Venue Areas:

  • Reception: Get directions, ask us anything!  
  • Main Stage: Keynotes, full group sessions and Happy Hours
  • Breakout Sessions: Engage in small-group zoom-style workshops
  • Ops Roulette: Meet & chat with peers 1-to-1
  • Tech Hall: Interact with technology service providers and see their solutions in action.


To keep tickets free to the first 1000 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 at no cost, we ask that each attendee & speaker agree to 2-4 brief 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 $25 Amazon gift card. You can select whether you’d like to take 2, 3, or 4 meetings. Most attendees only receive 1-2 matches per event, but you can do more if you wish! 

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, April 1-6.  

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 $25 Amazon gift card, up to $100. 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. Gift cards are distributed electronically after meetings have occurred.
