DI Tour cities ()

Gizmodo Media Group is successfully reaching millennials and monetising them with sites such as Gizmodo, The Onion, Deadspin and Jalopnik, Kotaku and Lifehacker. 

The CEO recently shared that the sites had between 90 and 95 million unique visitors and about 200-plus million monthly video views in the last couple of months. They have ambitious goals to drive a third of their revenue from commerce, a third from custom content and native advertising, and a third from programmatic, display and video advertising. The CEO believes commerce can grow 30 to 40 percent. We will meet with Gizmodo executives to hear about their approaches to these areas, ways content ties in, and the opportunities they see.

Gizmodo further builds on an already outstanding Digital Innovators' USA Tour programme with executive meetings at The Washington Post, National Geographic, Gannett’s Innovation Lab, Atlantic Media, Accenture Interactive Content Practice, Hanley Wood, Facebook, Bloomberg Media/Businessweek, Google, and Deep Focus. In addition to discussions with the executives at these companies, participants have an opportunity to network and share knowledge and experience with the other international senior media executives on the tour.

  • Can slow journalism march on… slowly?

    As news cycles speed up, 'slow' journalism seems to be slowing down. These days, to don the robe of a slow journalist, deadlines - and even scoops - are negated in seeking out accuracy, proportionality, fairness and, it seems Pulitzer prizes. An employer that can afford to pay a journalist an annual salary to tell one in-depth story  a year may come in handy too.
