Digital Innovators’ Summit (DIS):

With the Covid pandemic in 2020, many of us had to innovate and pivot on the fly to survive. Digital become more important, and more prevalent in connecting with our consumers than ever before.

Our well-established DIS with partners VDZ, the German Publishers Association, usually takes place in Berlin in March each year. It is also when we launch our popular, annual Innovation in World Media report.

In 2021, given continued restrictions on travel, we will run hour-long five in-depth DIS webinars with deep dives into key innovation areas for the year. The webinars will include topics such as people, sustainability, podcasting, storytelling, monetisation and more.
