Digital Media Strategies takes place 9 – 11 March 2015 at Kings Place, London. It brings together a global audience of over 450 senior leaders and CEOs from news, magazine, broadcast, B2B, STM and digital pureplay media businesses.

Over three days of case studies, analysis, workshops, training, round table discussions and tailored networking opportunities, it focuses on the key strategic challenges behind developing a profitable and sustainable media business in a digital world.

Now in its third year, it has now become the key venue for addressing the big-picture challenges facing the industry, focusing not on PR pitches, but instead on honest, in-depth case studies which go deeper than the surface trends.

Key themes to be addressed include:

  • How to transform the structure, culture and focus of an established media business
  • How to capitalise on the seismic changes in digital advertising, including viewability, native, programmatic and digital video
  • How to build and monetise a huge audience
  • How to build a differentiated, high quality and profitable video business
  • Hpw to reinvent your business for the mobile age
  • How the relationship between marketers, publishers and agencies is changing
  • What other industries can teach media

You should attend if…

  • You are a senior executive at any media business with a focus on digital development
  • You want to meet likeminded people addressing the same challenges
  • You would like to learn from both the success and mistakes of others, and hear case studies from both the leading players and lesser-known or international entities
  • You are developing a business case for digital change
  • And much, much more!
