Digiday Publishing Summit

Miami, FL

September 16 - 18, 2015

 

Everything old is new again.

Legacy publishers and young media companies can learn a lot from each other. While established organizations have brands with heft and history, startups have achieved scale at record pace. Each needs to strike the balance of innovation and credibility.

The Digiday Publishing Summit will examine tried-and-true strategies with up-and-coming approaches to monetizing content across platforms, diving deeper into mobile and video, and the latest thinking around ad blockers.
