Digiday Video Upfront ConferenceI will be attending the Digiday Video Upfront Conference in New York City on April 12th held at the Hilton Hotel located at 1335 Avenue of the Americas.


I always enjoy the events organized by Digiday, have attended their Digital Publishing and Advertising Conference on several occasions, and have received a lot of value each time as well as made some excellent connections.

From the Digiday Video Upfront Conference event website:


The State of The Digital Video Upfront: The best and the brightest in digital video, emerging platforms, plus media, marketing, publishing, and television executives will converge in New York City and Los Angeles to address the future of video programming and advertising. During this high-level event, Top Brand Marketers, Agency Executives, Publishers, Content Owners, and Video Technology experts  will come together to discuss and explore the shape of the burgeoning Upfront Digital Video Advertising Market. The conference will take a deep dive into the advertising and content market, the buying and selling opportunities, the projected growth, and the way brands and agencies are harnessing the power of digital video to engage today’s multi-screen consumer. Join us and we will show you how the 2011 market will shake out and what it means for you. This is an event you can’t afford to miss!
