Over the years the DIS has been established as the premium event in Europe for anyone, an essential platform for content-driven media to share digital insights and innovations.
In March 2015, the DIS attracted more than 600 executive level delegates from more than 30 countries, making it the biggest DIS yet. So far this year we have had more than double the registrations for DIS 2016 compared to the same time last year, setting the 2016 event on course to be even bigger than before.
Because of its digital and innovation focus, international participation and quality of the audience, the DIS provides an excellent platform for learning from and networking with media colleagues from around the world.
Thanks to the quality of the programme and speakers, the DIS truly helps move thinking. Take for example what the CEO of a large UK media group told us this week:
“I’ve attended and spoken at DIS numerous times over the years and each year I find the summit both thought-provoking and useful. I can think of several occasions when we’ve changed the approach or direction of specific projects as a direct result of insight or thinking from some of the sessions.”*
