Publishers Will Reveal How To Adapt & Thrive at The Evolution Summit
To address these challenges, Publishing Executive has launched the latest in its Publishing Executive Live series of leadership summits. Dubbed Publishing Executive Live: The Evolution Summit, the event will explore how publishers are reinventing themselves and changing the industry. We’ve assembled a stellar roster of publishing and media leaders to share how they’ve created new revenue streams, revamped their organizations, and redeveloped content strategies to meet the new realities of consumer habits and advertising spend.
The Evolution Summit will be hosted on September 29th at Brasserie 8 ½ in New York City. The event is ideal for C- and D-level publishing executives and will provide concrete strategies that leaders can implement in their own businesses to adapt to the new media landscape. Speakers from U.S. News & World Report, Financial Times, Wired, and Foreign Affairs will speak on topics such as organizational management, the power of new revenue streams like marketing services, podcasts, and ecommerce, and the growing need for smart, data-driven content. Ample networking opportunities will also be provided.
Details on the content planned for September 29th are below. For more information on attending Publishing Executive Live, please contact publisher Matt Steinmetz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
