DCN Events Schedule 2020

DCN Events Header 2020DCN Events Header 2020

DCN events are designed for members to roll up their sleeves and dig into discussions with their peers. Speakers provide insights into their businesses and share real-world examples of what’s working and what’s not. Why? Because these events are closed-door, no press or video and members feel safe sharing their expertise and their questions.

In addition, the content is noticeably different from the PR-approved, substance-light presentations you’ll find at events targeting more general audiences representing the entire digital ecosystem. Members attend because the agenda is focused exclusively on their current issues and there are no consultants or press in the room. There are countless industry events that cater to anyone and everyone – DCN member events are hyper-focused on what publishers need to know today.

DCN Subscription Innovation 2020

September 10, 2020
Reuters Building, NYC

Publishers are in it to win it when it comes to subscriptions. Just a few years ago it was hard to strike up a conversation about subscription strategies and now subscriptions have officially reached “hot topic” status. Whatever the reasons, it’s clear that publishers have moved beyond relying solely on ad revenue and are focused on building a more diversified revenue approach that includes subscriptions and memberships.  But no one said change is easy.

The list of challenges is long and is best addressed with a deep understanding of your audience and of how to leverage your brand to build a direct relationship with them. We’ll cover organizational challenges, innovative approaches, how email is a subscription workhorse, and how to smartly align data and insights with action. The day will include representatives from member companies in both print/digital and video/OTT subscription roles who will offer insights applicable across channels.
