DPP Event Strands

The DPP holds a variety of different events each year – from small and exclusive to large and open. An explanation of our main strands follows below, with information about who to contact to get involved.

DPP Leaders’ Briefing

The DPP Leaders’ Briefing is our flagship event. It has grown quickly to become known as the pre-eminent business intelligence event for the media industry. It is an annual conference and networking event held in November, that brings together the supplier and content provider community to hear from senior executives of major media organisations as they share their strategic priorities. No other industry event provides so much focused insight in one place.

Contact Jayne for sponsorship opportunities.

DPP Innovation Week

DPP Innovation Week is a series of online speed pitching events designed to help DPP members:

  • See the latest innovations
  • Understand the market
  • Form partnerships

Attendees learn about what's new - and discover companies they don't know - without needing to do hours of research.

Any DPP member company can apply to present a three minute pitch. Then, after the event, we make connections between interested customers and suppliers.

DPP Executive Dinners

DPP Executive Dinners are invitation only events bringing together senior leaders to discuss the industry’s most pressing topics. We create valuable, bespoke engagements based on our knowledge and expertise, and provide some of the highest value networking in the industry.

If you’d like to partner with the DPP to connect with key senior executives please contact Anh to find out more about how DPP Executive Dinners could help your organisation.

DPP Next Generation Production Network

The DPP Next Gen Production Network is designed to help video creation companies to build more effective business operations. Supplier members will also be invited to share their knowledge and expertise with these producers, in a non-sales environment. The Network defines the topics it wants to explore, and the type and frequency of meetup it needs to generate the most useful outputs.

DPP Leaders’ Network

The DPP Leader’s Network brings together senior leaders from all parts of the business in exclusive invitation-only sessions, to address major industry challenges, such as: transforming workforces, engaging with customers and suppliers in new ways, and integrating media businesses to better deliver common strategic objectives.

DPP Tech Network

The DPP Tech Network is designed for everyone who would like to be informed about, or take part in, DPP technical projects. Quarterly meetings happen in person and online, so you can join from anywhere in the world. Plus there are other ad hoc technical events which unpack DPP specifications, recommendations and more. The type and frequency of these is driven by the objectives of DPP technical projects, progress of implementation, and the desired outcomes.

Find out more about how to join the Tech Network here or contact Rowan to suggest an event topic for discussion.

A Drink With...

Your opportunity to have a drink with an industry leader, A Drink With... is the DPP at its most relaxed. Each event features a conversation with a top class guest speaker, followed by an informal drinks reception during which you can socialise with other DPP members. These events are held on a quarterly basis, usually at a member company’s premises.

Contact Jayne if you have a suitable location for A Drink With…

DPP Workshops

Throughout the year we run many unique, invitation only workshops in which customers and suppliers work together to focus on a particular project. Usually, we facilitate the workshop to produce an outcome that contributes to a piece of DPP research. 20-30 attendees from the DPP membership are specially selected to attend each event based on their knowledge and experience of the subject area.

This list is not exhaustive. Although we’ll always maintain editorial control of our events, we are happy to discuss subjects that may be of mutual interest, either as part of one of these event strands or as a stand alone event, where appropriate. All DPP events are available for sponsorship – but only to DPP member companies. You can find more information about sponsorship here.
