Every year, hundreds of media finance professionals come together to discuss emerging issues, benchmark best practices, and network with like minds at the ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference. With so many recent developments and conversations around the media ecosystem, this year was especially notable. Panels ranged from fraud in digital advertising and supplier diversity to the development of in-house agencies and navigating what’s next in an explosive media universe.

Nevertheless, it can be difficult to dive deeper into some of these notable topics in just a few days. That’s why we hosted a private dining experience for FastPay clients, friends, and partners to continue the conversation outside of the hustle and bustle. Hosted at celebrity chef Michael Mina’s restaurant Bourbon Steak, invitees had the opportunity to connect 1:1 while enjoying a 3-course meal, craft cocktails, and hand-rolled cigars.

“The ANA AFM Conference is one of the few conferences that include both media and finance professionals so we wanted to utilize this time to facilitate meaningful conversation and learn directly from our client’s experiences. It was a great opportunity to alleviate some concerns and discover ways we can better adapt and support industry professionals,” said Rich Rosenzweig, East Coast Regional Director at FastPay.

As a longstanding sponsor of the ANA AFM, we were happy to be a part of this year’s discussions. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to see us! We hope to see you again next year.
