Publishing Executive Announces Dates for 2017 FUSE Media Tech Summit, Newsletter Launch
The Publishing Executive team is thrilled to announce the dates and venue for its second annual technology summit, FUSE Media: The Convergence of Technology & Media. FUSE Media, an exclusive 2 1/2-day summit designed to accelerate the adoption of technology in the media industry, will take place Sept. 6-8th in Center City Philadelphia at The Logan.
The feedback on FUSE’s inaugural event was overwhelmingly positive. Media and publishing companies are constantly vetting, evaluating, and investing in new technology solutions and are increasingly turning to the vendor community for their expertise. Plus, there’s no better place for media executive to learn the practical opportunities and challenges of implementing new technologies than from their peers at other media companies. We created FUSE in order to provide a forum for these conversations and last year 60 media technology-minded executives from companies like The Economist, Randall-Reilly, Condé Nast, Time Inc., CQ Roll Call, ALM, and Forbes came together to network and learn. 2016 was a great first step—and now we’re looking to take the sponsor and attendee experience to the next level 2017.
FUSE, In Your Inbox
We’re also expanding FUSE beyond an annual event. With technology taking center stage at most media and publishing companies, Publishing Executive has launched a weekly newsletter focused on the issues that the FUSE community faces. (Subscribe here.)
The newsletter is designed to help media executives discover and understand the technologies that can propel their businesses forward. Subscribers will get news and analysis on the tech disrupting and uplifting the media business, plus gain access to exclusive content, including case studies, research, and networking events. Our first research report of the year will be on how publishers are managing the challenges and opportunities around distributed content. Look for that report in early February.
We’re also hoping this newsletter is place for the FUSE community to come together and exchange ideas on an ongoing basis. We encourage you to share your story on how your using technology to propel your business forward. Drop Publishing Executive editor-in-chief Denis Wilson a note to get into the mix (firstname.lastname@example.org).
FUSE Media 2017 already has the support of returning sponsors PostUp, BlueConic, Lytics, Omeda, Sailthru, and Digital Convergence Technologies.
Sponsorship opportunities for the 2017 FUSE summit and newsletter are still available. Please contact Matt Steinmetz at email@example.com for more information.
