Why join?

Interact with a diverse group of knowledgeable individuals passionate about ad filtering. Learn from some of the most influential people in the ad tech industry and see first-hand the cutting-edge advances happening in the world of ad filtering.

The explosive growth of ad blockers has forced publishers and advertisers to listen seriously to consumer demands and reform some of their most aggressive ad practices. Though, we’ve also witnessed how user reactions to ad blocking are no longer black and white, but rather a spectrum, and the growth of ad filtering is replacing traditional all-out ad-blocking methods. Learn how to contribute to the ad-filtering community from the best in the game at this industry-wide event, and partake in the discussion on the future of ad filtering, from machine learning to VR/AR, embedded devices, and more.

What to do?

  • Meet the developers behind some of the most successful ad-filtering apps in the world.
  • Learn what’s on the cutting edge in the world of ad filtering.
  • Help transform the advertising industry to be held more accountable to consumers.
  • Pitch your ideas for VR, machine learning, and AI in ad filtering. Help shape ad filtering for the future!
