Marketing & Commerce, the Internet and Reaching the Digital Consumer"
Santa Monica, CA March 8, 2004
Donald A. Jasko, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Economics, will moderate a panel on March 30, 2004 at the Digital
Hollywood Spring Conference in Santa Monica. The panel will review the effects of the transition to broadband, and the
wiring of the home, on the "digital consumer." In particular, it will focus its attention on the evolving preferences
of the "always-connected" consumer, and the challenges and opportunities they represent for media, content owners and
advertisers. Among the questions to be addressed are:
Appearing on the panel will be:
- What media and technologies will win the battle for the consumer's favor?
- How will the transition to broadband affect the nature of content and advertising?
- Will content and commerce become indistinguishable?
- What business models will support the delivery of content?
- What metrics will be used to measure the effectiveness of advertising?
The panel will commence at 3:45 PM on March 30. The Digital Hollywood Spring Conference will be held at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.
