Native advertising and content marketing, successful content and revenue strategies, social distribution and stories of change and transformation, all wrapped into case studies presented by those who make them happen – our programme for the Digital Innovators’ Summit 2014 is shaping up to be exciting and inspiring yet practical.
The preliminary programme is now live on the DIS website.
The DIS takes place on 24-25 March 2014 in Berlin, Germany. More than 40 international speakers will address the audience in more than 30 sessions across two days. Early bird registration is now available, offering 20 per cent off the standard delegate rates (for FIPP and VDZ members, this is additional to your normal membership savings).
Speakers sharing experiences and insights from their content businesses come from media companies including Buzzfeed, Hanley Wood, The Onion, Immediate Media, Axel Springer, Mediehuset Fædrelandsvennen and Sanoma. Others in the wider media industry will add valuable innovation perspectives:
- Jason Brightman, head of Amazon’s Shopping Experience, who will share insights into their approaches to and optimisation of user interface experiences
- Rich Gordon, professor and director of digital innovation, Medill School of Journalism and Knight Lab of Northwestern University, USA, on their latest projects of innovations in journalism
- Joseph Wade, director at the Agency Don’t Panic, reveals secrets how to make videos and branded content that will go viral
- Andy Mitchell, director partnerships at Facebook, gives publishers ideas on how to make the most of Facebook
We’ll also let innovative and noteworthy start-ups take the stage in our new ‘DIS Accelerator’ on the afternoon of 25 March, where you can meet some of the hottest new companies that might have an influence on your business in the future.
