Modev, a leading b2b community builder and conference producer, has entered into a long term agreement for conference advisory services with 8 Meter Media and 8 Meter’s founder and CEO, Bowen Dwelle. Through this relationship, Modev seeks to accelerate growth of their business, drawing on Mr. Dwelle’s experience founding and building AdMonsters, a professional community, media, and conference business serving leaders in online advertising operations.
From its original founding in 1999, AdMonsters grew to include the AdMonsters Publisher Forum and the OPS conference series, and became part of 8 Meter Media’s portfolio of brands in 2014. In 2015, 8 Meter successfully sold AdMonsters and OPS to Access Intelligence, where they continue to live and thrive.
“We’re thrilled to have Bowen’s expertise as his recent experience building and selling Admonsters applies directly to much of the work we are doing.” Pete Erickson, Founder, Modev
This relationship represents a significant step forwards in the growth of the conference advisory business for 8 Meter Media. 8 Meter expects to make major announcements soon across its other lines of business, which also include event production, sports brand management and media production.
“What Pete is doing with Modev is awesome. I’m really happy to have found someone else building a company with so many parallels to AdMonsters, where I can apply my experience so directly. My goal is to help Pete grow his business more quickly and have more fun along the way – and we’re going to do exactly that.” Bowen Dwelle, Founder & CEO, 8 Meter Media
Modev produces several conference series, including the upcoming EXO Software Series in Aspen, Colorado, Code Writers Workshop series, and the forthcoming Voicehacks community and event series. 8 Meter Media is offering an exclusive discount for the EXO conferences, with a special offer for members of the AdMonsters community.
