FAQ

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.

How many people will be attending the Publisher Forum? Are there international attendees?

Publisher Forum is a small event. At max, we allow 200 attendees (publishers + sponsors). Attendees are typically 95% from the United States and Canada, 5% from Europe. 

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

Substitutions from within the same company are accepted.  Non-payment or non-attendance due to natural disaster or any other reason does not constitute cancellation or refund.
