The DPP, the media industry’s business network, has today launched the DPP Tech Leaders’ Briefing for 2020.
The DPP Tech Leaders’ Briefing is the only event at which senior technology and operations executives from leading media companies share their strategic priorities with the industry.
This year the event will be live streamed in the week of 16 November.
The unique format of Tech Leaders, in which each speaker identifies their three priorities, ensures it provides more focused insight than any other conference, says DPP CEO, Mark Harrison. ‘2021 looks set to be a turbulent year, and Tech Leaders will equip its attendees with the business intelligence they need for success.’
Once again senior executives from 30 major media organisations will share exclusive intelligence on what key technology buyers are looking for in the short to medium term, and what it means for the supply chain.
Speakers already lined up include senior representatives from ViacomCBS, WarnerMedia, Discovery, PBS, Facebook, CBC-Radio Canada, BBC, Channel 4, ITV, UKTV, News Corp, Reuters, Vice Media, BT Sport, Eurosport, Havas Media Group, ZDF, SVT, and A+E EMEA, with many more to be announced. These exclusive briefings for suppliers will offer unparalleled intelligence.
This year’s event will also feature a keynote from Eva Grimmett, Group Chief Strategy Officer, Havas Media Group, a special session updating on the DPP’s Committed to Sustainability Programme, and this year’s Rise Awards, celebrating the outstanding talent, skills, expertise and achievements of exceptional women across the broadcast technology and services sectors.
The DPP Tech Leaders’ Briefing 2020 will be streamed via the DPP website, meaning that DPP members from around the globe will be able to log in, enjoy this exclusive content, and pose questions to the speakers. The sessions will be available on demand after the event for members who are unable to attend live, along with a summary report of the trends from across the four days.
Returning for the third year running, the lead sponsor for the DPP Tech Leaders’ Briefing will be Google Cloud, with Supporting Sponsors Brightcove, Fastly, Premiere Digital, SDVI, Signiant and Sony. The Streaming Sponsor will be Mux, and the Programme Sponsor, Cerberus Tech.
Over the next few weeks, ahead of the DPP Tech Leaders’ Briefing, the DPP will complete its six part Design for Tomorrow series on building back better, by publishing three further reports on Content Creation, Distribution and Commercial Relationships. Each of these reports will be followed by a webcast featuring subject matter experts exploring the themes from the report.
