Digital Media: Transition or Transformation?

The move to the web by business publishing companies is at a crossroads. We’re all doing it to some extent, but at different speeds and in various areas. How fast do we need to make the shift? Can it be pursued in an orderly, “business as usual” fashion, or should it be made at a more radical, wholesale pace? And how far do we need to go?

Well, there’s no better way to figure it out than by asking a panel of experts, such as:
Our panel will address this issue through topics such as:
  • What are the risks and rewards to incorporating more of a digital presence, and how much of your existing infrastructure can make -- or enhance -- that transition?

  • What end state should you aim for in terms of dividing assets and resources amongst print and web?

  • What digital products should you build? How can you create value-based differentiation between your print and electronic products?

  • What will your staffing needs be?

  • What are appropriate success metrics?

Tickets include hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and a buffet dinner. A cash bar will be available.
