NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Organizing sponsors Landmark Ventures and Shelly Palmer are pleased to announce their partnership for the prestigious Media Tech Summit 2013 (www.mediatechsummit.com/), the sixth annual conference to bring together their exclusive global network of top Fortune 500 executives, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and luminaries. The summit will be held Oct. 23, 2013, at the Time & Life Building in New York City.
The Media Tech Summit is a premier annual gathering that offers a place for the brightest minds across industries to challenge paradigms, forecast trends and innovations, and share their creatively disruptive ideas in order to establish strategies to operate successfully in a world where connections influence every aspect of our lives.
"Our summit is unique in the high level of its participants and the curated way in which we map the future of social media, mobile, advertising, big data, cloud, Internet, e-commerce and consumer engagement," said Zeev Klein, general partner, Landmark Ventures. "Our speakers and participants operate at the nexus of content, hardware, software and brands -- and this is the one time a year that connects all the players at once in the same room with such a stellar group."
This year's meeting will address of-the-moment topics such as digital distribution, the state of connected advertising, big data, entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as dozens of other topics. Attendees will have the opportunity to customize their experience by selecting from multiple interactive boardroom roundtables throughout the day, as well as attending featured panel discussions and "lighting round" forums.
Added Shelly Palmer: "Tomorrow will not be like today. Today you will experience the slowest rate of technological change in your lifetime. Tomorrow, it will be faster and the pace of change will continue to increase. Managing this change and learning to adapt to it will separate the successful from the extinct. Adapt or die... that's what MTS 2013 is all about."
Over 50 speakers will present, serve on panel discussions or moderate at the action-packed one-day summit, including Shelly Palmer; Ted Leonsis, chairman -- Groupon; Lisa Donohue, CEO -- Starcom USA; Jorge Espinel, head, global business development -- Spotify; Yossi Vardi, media entrepreneur and investor; Kristen O'Hara, CMO, Time Warner; and many more.
