Digiday Publishing Summit – Key Biscayne, FL

Digiday Publishing Summit – Key Biscayne, FL

Using platforms to build audiences has proven successful for many publishers. While platforms expand content distribution options, audiences are spending more time on mobile and video consumption is skyrocketing and publishers are scrambling to be there. But as the number of viewers grow, it’s still uncertain how publishers can make money on these platforms. The Digiday Publishing Summit gathers leading publishing executives to discuss these issues and how they’re trying to make money off their content, no matter where it’s distributed.

MEETINGS WITH BUY-SIDE EXECUTIVES
The 10-Minute Meetings — affectionately referred to as “speed dating” by our regular attendees — pair buy-and sell-side attendees so that they can meet, discuss their needs and potentially decide if they want to do business together. Before the summit, you will have the chance to pick which executives you want to meet with.

SMALL-SCALE EVENTS FOR HIGH-IMPACT NETWORKING
You will never struggle to connect with others at a Digiday summit. Summits are kept to between 100 and 300 participants to ensure communication is one-on-one,not one hundred-on-one, so you make the connections you need. The proportion of buy-side to sell-side attendees at summits is 60:40, so the odds as a sell-side attendee are in your favor.

EXCELLENT VALUE THAT KEEPS EXPENSES LOW
How much do you spend on traveling to meet prospective clients all over the country, or even all over the world? Now think about how much you spend when they cancel the meeting. Fewer trips and expenses mean you don’t risk your marketing budget.

UNPARALLELED ATTENDEE BUYING POWER
Digiday buy-side attendees make the purchasing decisions around marketing tools and software that make their jobs easier. This power is worth millions and in some cases, billions.

RESPECT FOR YOUR TIME, PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL
Summits almost always begin on a Wednesday and end on a Friday, giving you the beginning of the week to prepare and the weekend to rest. Summits do not run on weekends, except on very rare occasions.

Over the past year, we’ve witnessed increasing chatter across all marketing channels about Artificial Intelligence (AI). You’re either a believer or you’re not, but the truth of the matter is AI is fast creeping up your lane and is metres away from knocking on your door. Whether you’ve employed an AI strategy in your company yet or not, in the nicest possible sense, it doesn’t matter. AI is something that all marketers need to be aware of.
