DPAA has unveiled a preliminary list of speakers and the opening of registration for its annual Video Everywhere Summit, which will be held on Tuesday, October 15 as one of the key events during New York Digital Signage Week (October 14-18, 2019), at a larger venue, the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel.
This new space was chosen to accommodate an anticipated record number of delegates and expanded list of exhibitors. The Summit, which is easily the industry’s largest one-day omnichannel event covering how brands are utilizing all media types to engage consumers always has a mighty impressive list of speakers. The preliminary list of speakers just announced, includes: –
Tim Castree, North America CEO, GroupM
Briana O’Dea, Director, Digital Operations, Dell
George Hammer, Chief Content Officer, IBM
John Osborn, CEO, OMD
Dan Salzman, Global Head of Media, Analytics and Insights, HP
Emily Maxey, VP, Global Marketing, Adidas
Laura Martin, M.D. Media Analyst, Needham & Co.
Steve Brown, tech futurist
Lucie Fink, social media influencer
Barry Frey, DPAA President & CEO, will, as always lead the Video Everywhere Summit i his indomitable style and conduct one-on-one interviews with select speakers. He told us “The excitement among our members and throughout the industry is palpable as we assemble another dynamic, news-making speaker roster for the annual Video Everywhere Summit, which has established itself as the industry’s signature event for anyone interested in all aspects of omnichannel advertising. We look forward to the Summit once again being the centerpiece of New York Digital Signage Week, a tremendous confluence of events, receptions, tours, showcases and more.”
Summit topics include the digitization of out-of-home advertising, multi-screen engagement, use of location data, programmatic and more. The 2019 Summit is expected to exceed the record 900 delegates — representing brands, agencies, programmatic platforms, out-of-home media owners, ad tech, mobile/location companies, data firms and others from the full spectrum of multi-screen advertising— who attended the 2018 event.
The Video Everywhere Summit has experienced substantial growth in delegates, sponsors and press coverage by breaking the mold of the traditional out-of-home conference model, featuring timely and high-interest topics including programmatic, direct-to-consumer, mobile tie-ups, etc., that look at out-of-home as a growing part of the overall media and advertising landscape.
The new venue for 2019 will accommodate twice as many exhibitors as last year’s Summit, necessitated by a waiting list of companies that were unable to participate because of space restrictions.
Additional speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. Registration can be found here.
