Digiday Media Moguls is an exclusive, C-level-only gathering that brings together 50 top decision-makers in media and technology for two days of intimate discussion.

In Vail, Colorado this March 27 - 29, Moguls will feature working groups that will tackle issues facing the media industry, including platform dependency, the shift to video, programmatic inventory commoditization, alternative revenue models and ad blocking.

Each working group will assemble proposed actions to move the industry forward on each topic.
Along the way, Moguls will offer ample networking opportunities with peers away from the day-to-day routine.
