Back by popular demand – but this year with a twist – don’t miss the Fourth Annual Agency Shoot-Out!

“Why won't this agency see me?”  “Why did I not get on the buy?”  “How does this agency keep any business when my site is such an obvious fit for this campaign?” “What, are they stupid?” All common questions asked by publishers every day.  And how many times throughout the day in an agency do you hear, “why is this rep wasting my time again?” Or, “they didn’t present to me what I asked for?” or “their numbers are way off of ours.”

This year, we’ll be debating agency and publisher challenges and pain points in working with each other in an Agency Shoot-out.  Two teams, one representing agencies and one representing publishers, will share their thoughts on a number of identified challenges and will then be put to the test to develop best practices for overcoming these “hot” issues.

Regardless of whether you buy, create or sell media, you've undoubtedly experienced challenges with the other side. So come prepared with questions and personal experiences, and learn why some agencies and publishers work so well together - and why some don’t!
