DPAA's Media Summit kicks off this AM

October 27, 2010 by Dave Haynes

The DPAA’s 2010 Digital Media Summit is on all today in NYC, and we hope the event draws a strong agency/media crowd. It would be a BIG stretch to say the event was well-promoted in the digital signage and DOOH sector, but that’s not the crowd that needs to be at this thing anyway. It needs media people, not vendors.

The event is at the Roosevelt Hotel on Madison Avenue. Here’s the schedule.

11:35 AM Panel: Research Activation

The amount of research in place-based media has exploded, from audience measurement studies to inclusion in major syndicated databases, this panel explores what’s out there, but more importantly, how agencies can leverage these resources to make it easier to plan and buy the medium.

I don’t see anything suggesting a hash tag for Tweets (probably #DPAA), but I know DailyDOOH is there, and suspect ScreenMedia Daily will, as well, so we should see some coverage through the day. Phil Cohen of Care Media has a page set up promising streamed video, which will be great if that comes together. However, it might just be for his mike time. We’ll see, I suppose.
