The rise of the visual web. Come see it for yourself.

The FIPP World Congress takes place from 13-15 October 2015 in Toronto, Canada (you can register for it here).

Take the merger of Kadokawa Corporation and Dwango, which operates one of Japan’s largest online video platforms, in October 2014. Kadokawa Corporation chairman Tsuguhiko Kadokawa will be at the Congress to tell delegates more about the thinking behind the merger.

Then there’s the story of Cottage Life Media, a forward-thinking regional magazine media company in Canada, and its fusion with Blue Ant Media, with its background in TV and online platforms, and its international reach. Why, and how did these companies make 1+1 = 3?

Online video platform Vimeo will be at the Congress to share tips on how publishers can unearth hidden revenue streams that are likely staring them right in the face. Find out how brands such as Entertainment Weekly, The Atlantic, Gawker, CBS Interactive’s and others are taking advantage of Vimeo’s video-on-demand publisher network.

Unruly is well-known for its Viral Video Charts, available via brands like Campaign, Guardian, Adweek, Welt, Washington Post and others. But, positioned at the intersection of mobile, social and video, there is much, much more to the company. Hear how they can help publishers increase viewer engagement, brand performance and revenues.

Crowdsourcing stock photo (and now with video and music too) platform Shutterstock’s will be in Toronto – with guests – to share their thoughts on how to make the most of the visual web.

When it comes to creative use of visual media, Cannes Lions is a good place see some of the best work from around the world. We’re bringing Cannes to Toronto, with Cannes Lions CEO Phil Thomas on stage to show delegates some of the best work from Cannes Lions 2015.

In their Day 1 session, Innovation Media Consulting’s Juan Senor and John Wilpers will show delegates how publishers – large and small – are innovating with video formats. This will be part of a whirlwind tour of innovation in magazine media around the world, before Juan and John hosts FIPP Innovation at the Congress the next day.

Come see it for yourself.
