Digiday Video Anywhere Summit

New Orleans, LA

May 17 - 19, 2017

 

Smart scale

Relatively speaking, scale is easy in online video but revenue isn’t. Now that media companies have a multitude of options for generating revenue on digital, what are the choices some of the top companies and brands are making and why? Why do some publishers continue to invest in social content, while others are placing more of an emphasis on direct connections? Why are some still choosing to do it all? How and what video publishers value and put resources toward will go a long way in determining who ultimately wins.

At the Digiday Video Anywhere Summit in New Orleans, we will discuss these emerging challenges.

5 things we’ve learned

Sponsors

As a startup company new to the live video space, we found the sessions and discussions with veterans from the industry to be invaluable. We will definitely be attending another event.

— Managing Partner, Rabble

Terrific opportunity to learn and share best practices with peers in all areas of the digital media business. The DVAS definitely attracted an informed and interested group of attendees.

— VP, Strategic Partnerships, WebMD

The Digiday Video Summit was an incredible opportunity for publishers like us to meet and connect with the people behind the technology that will take our content to the next level.

— Digital Media Producer, AWM

Digiday summits are incredibly valuable as they connect the right people at the right levels from the right companies, effectively mitigating the normal back-and-forth. You can quickly vet an opportunity and walk away with next steps if you want to proceed.
