Digiday Publishing Summit

Vail, CO

March 30 - April 1, 2016

 

Publishers are dealing with a new world in which control of distribution and monetization is often outside their control. Audiences are migrating to platforms like Facebook, where publishers can find enormous reach. By the same token, monetization is often in control of platforms. For modern publishers, the trick is balancing the power of platforms with the need for publishers to control their future.

At the Digiday Publishing Summit in Vail, CO, we will discuss how publishers can regain control of their content and distribution through platform monetization, mobile and video.
