Publishing Executive is excited to have Joe Alicata, director of video product at Vox Media, as the keynote speaker for our September 16th event, Digital Pioneers: Executive Summit on Digital and Mobile Publishing. Alicata will provide attendees with concrete strategies for making video a scalable, cross-platform enterprise within a media company. Alicata has worked to expand Vox's extensive video platform, improving workflows and leading to new monetization efforts. Alicata will be joined by an exciting roster of speakers, including leaders from Active Interest Media, Hanley Wood, Foreign Affairs, BisNow, Slate, and more.
An audience of C- and D-level media executives from the consumer and B2B segments will converge on the Union League in New York City, with discussions focusing on how publishers are reinventing themselves in order to thrive across multiple channels and products. Attendees will have the chance to connect with industry colleagues and interact extensively with PE LIVE! speakers, enlivening these discussions through Q&A sessions and continue the debate over lunch and cocktails.

Following is a summary of the agenda for "Publishing 3.0: Redefining the New Media Company." We hope to see you September 16th!
Transforming into an Audience-Centric Enterprise
After the morning networking session, Active Interest Media president Andy Clurman, Slate Magazine's general manager Brendan Monaghan, and Hanley Wood president Andy Reid will explore the value of transitioning their companies to audience-centric enterprises as opposed to product-centric ones. This panel's challenge: how do publishers engage with an audience in more dynamic ways, create new product offerings for clients, and develop richer, more sustainable profit centers?
Capitalizing On Your Community: Launching Video, Events, Subscription Models
By homing in on their core audiences, these publishers have launched new products that add user value and bring the kind of engagement marketers are increasingly recognizing the value of. Panelists include Lynda Hammes, publisher at Foreign Affairs, Ryan Begelman, CEO of BisNow, and Mark Subers, group president and media director of North American Publishing Co.
