How to become a speaker at a Digiday event

Digiday mixes deep industry knowledge and experience with an emphasis on honesty over spin and quality over quantity, and that is no different with our events. Our events bring the Digiday content you read every day to life.

We look for people who are making change happen, leading the conversation when it comes to challenges the industry is facing and have new innovative ideas on how to tackle them.  

Either as solo presentations or moderated chats with our editors and reporters, we’re bringing Digiday content to life on stage, and we’d love to have you speak. Here’s what you need to know.

What event should I speak at?
Our events are broken up into three buckets: publishers, agencies and brands. Each event is for one of the specific industries or buckets. Here’s how you know what bucket you fall into:

What else happens at Digiday events?
Digiday events are small, intimate and in luxurious locations. Digiday events are meant to cultivate authenticity and more importantly, real conversations and connections about what is really happening in media and marketing. On top of industry-leading speakers, Digiday summits also include:

  • Industry town halls: Closed conversation for industry members to share real challenges they are facing and collaborate to find solutions.
  • Working groups: Attendees are divided into working groups and assigned a particular challenge facing the industry to find solutions to. Each working group has a leader that will direct the group discussion and present the solutions to the summit.
  • Eight-minute meetings:  The eight-minute business meetings connect VIP agency delegates with innovative technology platforms and media companies. They are designed to help your team build valuable new relationships and ultimately, close business deals.
  • Endless networking opportunities: Throughout the summits, there are networking breaks, cocktails receptions and group dinners.
