The New York Times, Facebook, Kraft, Virgin Mobile, The Onion, OMD, Buzzfeed, Sharethrough, Huffington Post, Mashable, and many others all come together in only one place: The Native Advertising Summit. The upcoming Chicago summit is going to be phenomenal. No other way to say it.
As it gets colder in the Midwest, some people tend to shy away from flying into Chicago. That will not be the case this November, as several hundred digital advertising executives from around the world meet to discuss what the future of media looks like. The Native Advertising Summit Summit Series, which has already made stops this year in New York & Atlanta, will swing through the Windy City on November 12th.
Listen, we understand that their are a ton of advertising events every year, and we also understand that many of them are an endless precession of mildly relevant panels. And we’re sure you understand that some events are just too good, too timely and too fun to miss.
To see what we mean, check out videos from our past two shows.
As a preview, here area few of the segments that we are looking forward to in Chicago:
1) The Dollar Shave Club – “Don’t Say the V Word”
Michael Dubin, CEO & Co-Founder of the DollarShaveClub will highlight how his company produced and promoted their extremely successful branded video (nearly 12 million views), and his thoughts on how every brand can create great content.
2) Panel: The Evolution of the Modern Internet
Participants from Sharethrough, Buzzfeed, OMD, Complex and National Public Media will discuss the visual and structural shifts we are seeing on the internet. From the growth of feed-based layouts to the growth of brands creating meaningful content, how will publishers keep up from both a design and advertising perspective?
3) The New York Times Presents
Meredith Levien, The New York Times VP of Advertising, will discuss how everyone can be great storytellers. As the former head of advertising at Forbes, she is sure to bring great insights from both the creative and distribution sides of the coin. Her presentation will conclude with a Q/A, so be sure to come prepared!
4) The Onion Presents
Honestly, how could you not be excited about an Onion presentation? From the publication that brought you stories such as “Kitten Thinks of Nothing But Murder All Day” and “Study Reveals: Babies Are Stupid”, we are confident that their President, Mike McAvoy, will deliver a humorous and engaging 20 minutes.
Look out for these and more in Chicago, and let us know what you are excited about.If you are interested to attend but are being fashionably late in registering, we completely understand, but this party is just about full so go do it right now.
