• ELEVATE Conference Gains Momentum With New Speakers, Sessions and Partners

    Our ELEVATE: Online Video Advertising Summit, coming up on Tuesday, June 7th in NYC, is continuing to gain significant momentum and I'm pleased to share new speakers, sessions and partners today.

    We've added a new morning session, "Content Publishers Crack the Code on Video Success," in which we'll hear from leading publishers and technologists about how their video initiatives are becoming increasingly sophisticated, particularly with regard to discovery, recommendations and advanced monetization. The panel includes:

    - Kevin Krim - Global Head of Bloomberg Web Properties
    - Doug Knopper - Co-Founder and Co-CEO, FreeWheel
    - Adam Singolda - CEO and Founder, Taboola
    - David Eun - Former President of AOL Media and Studios (moderator)

    We've also added an afternoon session, "Making Ad-Supported, Independently-Produced Video Profitable" in which we'll focus on how a new breed of video content producers are mastering the art of creating video specifically for the web - and making it profitable. This session includes:

    - Raj Amin - CEO and Co-Founder, HealthiNation
    - Ron Bloom - Chairman and Co-Founder, MEVIO
    - Joanne Bradford - Chief Revenue Officer, Demand Media
    (and a moderator TBD)

    Stay tuned as we'll be announcing more sessions and speakers next week, including a very special closing session.

    On the partner front, I'm also pleased to announce that Viewable Media, the recently-announced video ad network from analytics powerhouse Visible Measures has come on board as a Premier Partner.  In addition, Brightcove, a leading online video platform, Conviva, an online video delivery optimization provider and Taboola, which powers customized video recommendations, have all joined as Headline Partners, as has AmLaw 100 law firm Sheppard Mullin. We are delighted to have support from all of these partners, as well as the many others that I have announced previously.

    Last but not least, we're grateful to our newest media partners, who are helping get the word out about ELEVATE: The Advertising Club of New York, Beet.TV, NATPE, The Diffusion Group and Jack Myers Media Business Report.

    ELEVATE promises to be an action-packed day, jammed with terrific learning and networking. For executives in the online video industry at major brands, agencies, content publishers, technology providers and other stakeholders, ELEVATE is fast becoming a must-attend event!
