There’s only one place where, with one click, you can get all of the M&A activity in our industry (click here) AND there’s only one place where you can meet, listen to and network with all of the industry movers and shakers and that is at The DailyDOOH Investor Conference during New York Digital Signage Week (October 24-28, 2016).
Registration will be up shortly but we thought we would just tease you with some of the speakers we have…
The two people on stage trick – one an investor, and the other, the president of the company they’ve invested in works extremely well – something, we as conferenced organisers pioneered many years ago now, Ed and after the Chairperson’s opening remarks reviewing the M&A activity of the year we will be kicking off proper with Touchtunes president and COO Ross Honey and Searchlight Capital Partner Eric Sondag.
We do, of course, also have a morning slot reserved for our most regular of speakers – a certain Mark Boidman, from Peter J Solomon Company, a Natixis company.
We’re also excited to welcome to our conference Monica Ho, Chief Marketing Officer at xAd, Inc., a company with a reputed pre-IPO valuation close to USD 1 Billion and a company that is making lots of waves, and seemingly bringing lots of value to our industry (witness the MarketPlace beta partnership inked with Outfront Media inc. earlier this year).
MGM Resorts International is a collection of resort-casinos, residential living and retail developments (it is in fact one of the largest retailers). Randy Dearborn, Vice-President, Multimedia Technologies at MGM Resorts and also current chairman of the Digital Signage Federation will be giving his perspective on everything from digital signage to retail, to merchandising, marketing and architecture.
The token ‘Brit’ this year is actually a ‘Scot’ – regular attendees will know that over the past few years we’ve had the likes of Tim Bleakley (twice in fact) and Shaun Gregory come over to show the Americans how it’s done in London ;), Ed. Transport for London’s (TfL) Lead for Advertising Strategy Commercial Development Directorate, John Pizzamiglio is flying into explain about the unique public / private partnership that TfL is doing both above and below ground in the UK Capital.
The day’s moderator and chairperson Adrian Cotterill has a few more speakers up his sleeve which will be announced when he is back from his own vacation in early September.
We will end the day – which is, as always, pretty full on, with ‘The Future of Digital’ debated by the Chairman and CEO’s of our Industry Associations, namely François de Gaspé Beaubien, (DPAA Chairman), Clive Roux (SEGD CEO), Stephen Freitas (OAAA) and Randy Dearborn (DSF Chairman) and a small cocktail party hosted by our main sponsor Dentons.
