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:

  • Transforming your business’ culture, structure and technology
  • Tackling new approaches to digital advertising
  • Addressing the evolution of advertising technology
  • Seizing the digital video explosion
  • Solving the mobile monetisation problem
  • Cracking the changing dynamic between content and commerce
  • Learning from the trials and successes of other industries

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!
