KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - October 23, 2009) - Brett Brewer, President of Adknowledge, will appear at the inaugural 80/20 Conference and deliver an address highlighting key learnings about the rapid growth of Adknowledge. Brewer will share how Adknowledge has grown into a leading advertising network and he will offer observations on how the Adknowledge success story provides lessons for other companies.

"From our founding in 2004, we have developed a technology, created a business model, and built a team that all come together to deliver a leading solution for advertisers and publishers," commented Brewer. "The world of online advertising and performance marketing is brutally competitive. We've got key success factors to share on how we've managed to thrive."

The 80/20 Conference provides an opportunity for a select audience of performance marketers to listen and interact with key executives from a range of highly successful companies. Developed by Jay Weintraub, an Internet advertising market strategist and frequent speaker for the online advertising community, the conference provides a leadership summit for the online customer acquisition industry.

"Inviting Brett was a no-brainer given his early success as a co-founder of Intermix Media, the MySpace parent, and current success at Adknowledge," said Weintraub. "Performance-based online customer acquisition and social media monetization have come together in a way previously unanticipated. Brett and Adknowledge are undisputed leaders in both. Having their participation fits exactly with the mission of the show."

The 80/20 Conference spotlights the performance marketing sector, an increasingly important area of internet advertising.
