8 Meter was founded by Bowen Dwelle in 2014 as an home for a growing family of professional conferences including AdMonsters and OPS along with other conferences, events, consulting, and other activities. AdMonsters and OPS were sold to Access Intelligence in 2015. Bowen originally founded AdMonsters in 1999, and so the current incarnation of 8 Meter represents nearly 20 years of continuous experience producing conferences and events.

Bowen is a proud and passionate member of the San Francisco chapter of EO, the Entrepreneurs Organization, and has served as Forum Moderator, Learning Chair, Communications Chair, Forum Chair, and Chapter President, and is also the founder and moderator of Flow Forum, a unique myEO Forum focused on physical flow and outdoor athletic challenge. 8 Meter offers a discount for EO Members as part of the EO Envoy program.
