Testimonials from the 2018 Summit

From the 2017 DCN Next: Summit attendee survey:

  • “Truly transparent discussions vs. an ‘industry conference’ where the sound bites are always the same and the conversation is guarded.”
  • “The discourse is elevated at the Summit… a gathering of the top ranks of media companies digging into topics that impact us all.”
  • “I love that the Summit is focused purely on publishing issues, discussing market challenges, opportunities and business models.”
  • “The best media conference of the year. Strong presenters, leading industry executives, very valuable.”
  • “Well worth the time and money but bring your ‘A’ players. This is not a 'check the box’ event.”
