Native Storytelling for Mobile and Social

How do you reach a new generation of users that is constantly on their mobile phones and spends much of their time on the latest apps and social networks like SnapChat, Vine, Instagram and YouTube, or at least Facebook and Twitter? You bring the news to them, to the medium and app they are using and in the format they prefer – highly visual and with much video.

Speakers include: Ed O'Keefe, Editor-in-Chief, NowThis News

Same Media Brand, New Format and Business Models

The US satirical news brand The Onion has become more successful by moving almost entirely to digital, increasing video production, creating native advertising that fits their brand and becoming a creative services agency that extends its comedy talents to advertisers. Steve Hannah shares how they have transformed their weekly newspaper into a 24/7 digital media brand.

Speakers include: Steve Hannah, CEO, The Onion (USA)

Speakers include: Joseph Wade, Director, Don’t Panic (UK)
