The Digital Innovators' USA Tour
to New York and Washington D.C. from 7-12 May 2017 continues to add innovative media companies with the latest being Gizmodo Media Group.
Gizmodo Media Group is successfully reaching millennials and monetising them with sites such as Gizmodo, The Onion, Deadspin and Jalopnik, Kotaku and Lifehacker.
The CEO recently shared that the sites had between 90 and 95 million unique visitors and about 200-plus million monthly video views in the last couple of months. They have ambitious goals to drive a third of their revenue from commerce, a third from custom content and native advertising, and a third from programmatic, display and video advertising. The CEO believes commerce can grow 30 to 40 percent. We will meet with Gizmodo executives to hear about their approaches to these areas, ways content ties in, and the opportunities they see.
Gizmodo further builds on an already outstanding Digital Innovators' USA Tour programme with executive meetings at The Washington Post, National Geographic, Gannett’s Innovation Lab, Atlantic Media, Accenture Interactive Content Practice, Hanley Wood, Facebook, Bloomberg Media/Businessweek, Google, and Deep Focus. In addition to discussions with the executives at these companies, participants have an opportunity to network and share knowledge and experience with the other international senior media executives on the tour.
