Digital strategies and emerging technologies seminar, Dallas Digital Summit 2013, is set to take place December 10th - 11th at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas, and plans to bring together more than 1,500 innovators, senior marketers, entrepreneurs and technology professionals to listen to and engage with 75 industry leaders and speakers' as they share their insights on the latest digital trends.
With names like Randi Zuckerberg of Zuckerberg Media (sister to Mark himself and formally of Facebook), Paul Bettner (Creator of Words with Friends), and Dallas-based technology and finance entrepreneur Lee Blaylock (CEO, Who@), this year's Dallas Digital Summit is shaping up to be an unprecedented milestone in the evolution of the digital and innovation community scene that took root in Dallas not so long ago.
Dallas has ad agencies, and for the last five to eight years these agencies have touted the power of digital marketing for their customers and clients. Outside of branding and digital advertising, back in September the people of Dallas saw the true power of their voice via Twitter when an ordnance that would have hamstrung the beloved Uber was going to go on without debate via the city council. A grassroots group of fans of the service and created 100s of tweet using the hashtag #DallasNeedsUber in support of the company with links to the city councils' inboxes. With this uprising, Mayor Mike Rawlings decided to table the topic for another time. That's the power of digital media.
Even if you're not in marketing, PR, or advertising, all leadership needs to be aware of the latest strategies for when a crisis takes place, or an opportunity presents itself. Speaking of Twitter, Brent Herd who is the Director of Southeast for Twitter will also be speaking.
If you are apart of the C-suite and like to get that executive overview, you might be interested in hearing Sucharita Mulpuru-Kondali, VP, Principal Analyst, Forrester speak. Yes, that's the Forrester Research. For those of you that still want to know the secrets of SEO and the ever-changing algorithms for which sites are ranked, there are couple of search engine guys giving talks - David Shing, Digital Prophet, AOL, and Duane Forrester, Sr. Product Manager, Bing.
Last, but not least Philip Easter, Director of Mobile Apps, American Airlines Greg Petroff, General Manager, User Experience Center of Excellence, GE Software, are speaking, plus 70 more.
