A Message From Your Co-Hosts

Welcome to Matrix Solutions’ Media Ad Sales Summit Candid Conversations Series! We knew five years ago that by working together as an industry, we could come together to advance the way we buy and sell advertising and with that idea - the Media Ad Sales Summit was born. Although, the last four years we have hosted an in-person summit that consisted of 2 days of high-impact discussions on relevant topics that impact the industry, we are looking forward to extending that premise and delivering the same valuable content this year, in a virtual setting. We hope you will join us for our candid conversations throughout this series and look forward to connecting with you!

With Gratitude,
Mark Gorman, CEO, Matrix Solutions & Brenda Hetrick, CRO, Matrix Solutions
