2016 IAB Small Publisher Conference & Fly-In: Highlights

May 23-24 2016

      Introduction

      Small Publishers Unite in Washington D.C.

      Every year since 2009, IAB has brought small publishers to the nation’s capital for education on the latest topics in digital, and to meet with members of Congress and their staff. This year promises new experiences, new learning sessions, and more networking opportunities.

      The event consists of two parts. On the first day, we provide learning on hot topics relevant to small publisher businesses. There is also a networking dinner at Google’s D.C. headquarters. For day two, we organize visits with Congress so publishers can talk to our lawmakers about what is important to their businesses, and show how digital advertising is more than just giant tech companies – it’s a small business engine as well. Participants will hear from the IAB government relations team about legislative and regulatory proposals that could impact their businesses. The goal is to make sure DC representatives have a fuller understanding of the challenges facing online entrepreneurs and the impact that legislation and regulations may have on their businesses.

      “The Small Publisher Fly-in is the single best opportunity to tell key federal lawmakers your stories, and those of our industry, and to advocate for online advertising in the halls of Congress. Further, it demonstrates the diversity and breadth of content being funded by advertising. Join us and have your voice heard as elected officials consider legislation impacting your business.” – Dave Grimaldi, EVP of Public Policy, IAB
