Content Revenue Strategies @ ad:tech New York '09

ADSPACE, the Contextual Advertising Conference and Expo co-located with ad:tech will now, and forevermore, be known as the Content Revenue Strategies Conference & Expo

"We changed the name of the ADSPACE Conference to Content Revenue Strategies, because we think that the new name better explains our mission of educating and connecting people interested in profiting from contextual advertising online," says David Rodnitzky, Director of Content Revenue Strategies.
