As I’m sure you’ll all agree, it is high time we stopped wringing our hands about the challenged state of mainstream media and started focusing on the amazing new industry that is rising up beneath it.
That’s why we’re putting together the first annual IGNITION: Welcome To The Future Of Media conference. It will be held at the awesome Time Warner centre in NYC (thanks, mainstream media!) on December 2-3, and it won’t include the least bit of handwringing.
Instead, it will celebrate and explore the amazing new companies and business models that are taking advantage of this vast new digital opportunity. News, video, TV, books, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Google, Zynga, Yahoo, iPads–we’ll be analysing all of it. We already have a boatload of great speakers committed, and we’ll be adding many more over the next two months.
Special offer: to celebrate Business Insider’s new partnership with TicketLeap, we’re offering the first 25 ticket buyers the chance to snap up tickets at the deeply-discounted rate of $695. Hurry! Once they sell out, the offer ends. Thanks to TicketLeapfor making this possible.
Look forward to seeing you in December!
