  • 9:30 a.m.
    Introductions & What’s Your Challenge Session

    From diversifying ad revenue to making authentic connections with readers, publishers are constantly facing new and more complicated challenges. The “What’s Your Challenge” session will open the conversation to hear what challenges people are facing in the industry today.

  • 10:30 a.m.
    How I Did it Sessions

    The best way to learn is from each other. During these four half-hour sessions you will hear from fellow attendees on how they approached different challenges and tackled them successfully. From cutting down your ad-tech stack to refiguring your ad revenue model to how to make video profitably, this is your chance to learn from each other.

  • 11:30 a.m.

  • 1:00 p.m.
    Working Group Session 1 - Video

    Video

    Making video people want to watch and monetizing it is profitably is a huge challenge, especially for publishers without a history of doing it. How publishers approach and invest will go a long way in determining who wins at video.

  • 2:00 p.m.
    Working Group Session 2 - Platform Publishing

    Platform Publishing

    Platforms are playing a bigger part in the media ecosystem, eating up most of the digital ad spending and setting the rules for how publishers create, distribute and make money off their content. Publishers can ignore the platform giants at their peril.

  • 3:00 p.m.
    Working Group session 3 - Reader Revenue Models

    Reader Revenue Models

    It is obvious that publishers can't just rely on advertising revenue any longer so many are moving their focus to different reader revenue models and verticles to compensate for the lack of advertising revenue coming in.
