The Digital Place Based Advertising Association's newly released agenda for its 2015 Video Everywhere Summit features hot button issues and 14 previously unannounced high profile speakers for the Digital Signage Week event on November 3 at the Crowne Plaza in New York.
Critical issues will be discussed and debated at the eighth annual Summit, including programmatic buying, video agnostic planning, ad-tech, the business model of today's ad agencies and the future of retail, IoT and digital place-based media. Special sessions include Ted-Type Talks from industry leaders, a Shark Tank-style Tech Tank, a conversation about life on Madison Avenue in the 1960's with a "Mad Woman," case studies presented by marketers and more. There also will be an exhibit area where delegates can gain knowledge of the latest technologies and opportunities that exist in the DPB space.
"We've put together an incredible agenda for our 2015 Video Everywhere Summit," said Barry Frey, president & CEO, DPAA. "It's going to be quite a day, as we plan to tackle critical -- and in some cases, contentious -- topics and hear from leading C-suite executives. By day's end I am confident that all attending delegates will come away with actionable insights, new ideas and some great networking contacts."
