Content Strategies Summit Third Part of April Hat Trick

Publish date:

by David Keene

Earlier this week, I reported that this year’s NAB show in Las Vegas is leading into The Digital Signage Show. NAB (April 10–15; Exhibits April 12–15; at the Las Vegas Convention Center), and The Digital Signage Show (April 14–15 at Mandalay Bay. I should have also pointed out that that week in Vegas will be a kind of digital signage “hat trick” (to borrow a term from world soccer: three goals in one game). The third goal: brands and creative leaders will gather at the 5th Annual Digital Signage Content Strategies Summit, to be held on April 13 and 14 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Following the digital signage and digital out-of-home (OOH) industry’s request to have more dialogue with creative leaders, this year’s Summit features:

• Lars Bastholm, Chief Digital Creative Officer, Ogilvy & Mather
• Kevin Flatt, EVP, Executive Creative Director, Leo Burnett and Arc Worldwide
• Mark Renshaw, EVP, Digital Strategy Lead, Leo Burnett and Arc Worldwide
• Sean Cunningham, VP Associate Creative Director, Hill Holliday
• John McHale, Creative Director, Sapient Interactive
• Josiah Hobson, Creative Director, Schematic Touch
• Peter R. Viento, Executive Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi X

In addition to those from the agency side, leading brands such as Unilever, Wendy’s, Target, MGM Brand and Jyske Bank (Denmark) will also take the stage.

Digital signage networks may represent an ideal combo of time, place and message, but it is no easy feat to successfully grab the consumer’s attention and influence behavior. Without the right content at the right time, the screens have no value. As the industry is fond to say, content is king while context is queen. As such, the two-day conference will bring all the content pieces together, from shopper marketing and consumer insights, to creative and production, to network programming,

The forum will showcase content that works, offer tips on leveraging assets across platforms, and provide insights on content strategy and mobile integration.

“For the first time, the Content Summit is being offered as part of The Digital Signage Show lineup” said Yashod Bhardwaj, Project Manager at Strategy Institute. He mentioned, “This conference has been attended by Best Buy, DraftFCB, Altavia, Martin Agency, McKinney, Wal-Mart, Moxie Interactive, TracyLocke, Vox Optima, MediaVest and many other leading brands & agencies interested in sourcing compelling content to enhance customer experience.”

Sponsors for the event include Reflect Systems and X2O Media.

Helius Partner Summit

Utah-based Helius, providers of world-class IP broadcasting solutions for business, is increasingly involved in the top digital signage systems being rolled out nationwide. And this was in full evidence last week, as Helius hosted its annual Helius Partner Summit 2007, October 3-4, in Park City, UT. On hand at the Summit were dozens of Helius’ partners, top Helius customers, as well as some of the industry’s top consultants. The Summit offered both an update on Helius’ accomplishments in the past year (the acquisition of Gemini Software, and PointCast; the release of MediaAuthor, an easy-to-use digital signage application that allows the customer to create in PowerPoint; and the launch of new digital signage network services), but more importantly it offered a chance to explore in-depth the challenges and opportunities as digital signage continues to forge ahead in the quest to further take AV out of the boardroom and classroom and into public spaces.
