Digital Journal's Future of Media events are panel discussions that explore how current trends, technologies, business practices and social media innovation affect both the media industry and its audience. At this year’s event the focus will go beyond just media and look at marketing and advertising as well.
On the panel discussing the booming trend of branded content are: Jonathan Perelman, Vice President of Agency Strategy and Development for BuzzFeed; Josh Sternberg, reporter at digital media news outlet Digiday; Steve Ladurantaye, media reporter at the Globe & Mail; and Sabaa Quao, Chief Marketing Officer of Digital Journal Inc. and co-founder of @newsrooms.
Hosted by David Silverberg, editor-in-chief of Digital Journal, the event will feature a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session. Future of Media will be covered live on Twitter via the hashtag #FOM2013, and questions will be taken via Facebook and Twitter to pose to panelists.
