Innovate or Die: If the events of the past year taught us anything — from a scathing leaked New York Times memo in May to the rise of viral social publishers like BuzzFeed and Vox – it’s that a wholesale transformation of the publishing industry into a digital and multi-platform phenomenon is well underway. The growing diversity with which readers consume, pay for (or don’t) and access news and information has forced publishers to abandon their focus on print and adopt a digital-first strategy. And increasingly, digital first means mobile first.

The Digiday Publishing Summit will highlight the individuals at emerging and legacy publishers who are successfully staying on top of publishing evolving landscape and experimenting with varying degrees of success.
