Digiday Publishing Summit Japan

Odawara, Japan

February 2 - 3, 2017

 

Monetization, user experience and content creation

At the Digiday Publishing Summit Japan in June 2016, we discussed quality over quantity. We discussed what publishers need to improve to stand up to platforms through its audience, content, and creatives. As the power of platforms increases, publishers have to break through with high-quality content. Cutting-edge forms of expression such as video and VR have opened new doors for publishers looking to develop their content offerings beyond the usual text and images. However, user experience cannot fall by the wayside. Improved user experience can enhance content quality, leading to business success.

At the Digiday Publishing Summit Japan in February 2017, we will discuss how to not just survive, but thrive and expand in a new era of digital publishing. It is not just about adjusting your business to a digital environment -- it is about exploring and reforming the digital publishing world together.
