About the OPS Conference

Ops isn’t just how digital media is bought and sold anymore; digital media businesses are built on the foundation of Ops. And that is where the Ops conference comes in…

Real value in a conference comes from the highest quality content– the more you learn, the more you earn. That’s why we’ve designed the upcoming Ops conference as a comprehensive excursion into all the facets of digital media marketing and monetization. See our agenda for the breadth of topics we’ll cover.

Focus

We are exclusively focused on online ad operations and technology, tying in to the entire realm of digital operations, strategy, and technology. We remain committed to looking at the world of digital media and advertising through an operational, strategic lens.  

Quality

We believe that quality is paramount for a content-driven organization. Our value comes from our audience, and our audience comes for quality. Quality content means maintaining clear editorial vision and integrity, speaking directly to our audience, creating the relevant, timely, and actionable content, and not straying from our topical focus.

AdMonsters exists because Community is Necessary. A professional community is a requirement for an industry and a craft to develop to its highest potential.

This is where we find understanding, share stories, learn, grow, laugh, and make human contact in an increasingly virtual world.
