VDZ Digital Publishers‘ USA Tour 2015

Washington D.C. und San Francisco/Silicon Valley
27.09.2015 - 02.10.2015

Would you like to meet with executives at the Washington Post, Atlantic Media, Hanley Wood and Medium, discuss the latest developments of interest to publishers right at Apple and Twitter and hear the latest consumer trends straight from the preeminent Pew Research Institute? Then join us at the VDZ Digital Publishers Tour from September 27th to October 2nd to Washington DC and San Francisco/Silicon Valley, where you can enjoy the above confirmed meetings, with many more invigorating meetings to be announced!

The VDZ Digital Publishers’ USA Tour is designed for leaders in the rapidly changing media industry. It aims to show you new approaches to media businesses, identify trends that will impact your industry, and foster discussion with some of the most innovative thought leaders in media. The tour is a fantastic opportunity to step away from your daily responsibilities to interact and connect with other leaders who are developing new ideas and dealing with similar strategic issues. You will be inspired and get concrete ideas for the way forward!

The tour will start in Washington D.C., the U.S. capital which is also home to innovative U.S. media companies such as the Washington Post, Gannett and National Geographic. These media companies are able to tap into an area rich with technology talent and hot tech and media startups. In the Washington, DC area we will meet with major magazine and newspaper media brands as well as startups involved with media and research institutes.

We then fly across the U.S. to San Francisco and Silicon Valley to experience the largest center of innovation and technology in the world. It is the home of such tech giants as Apple, Twitter, Google and Facebook but also many startups. We will engage with digital natives who are developing new products, services, business models, technologies and tools that are impacting and changing media.
