Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Southwest Media Group has announced the dates and venue for this year’s annual Digital Summit. Speakers for this year’s summit include James McQuivey from Forrester Research, speakers from a variety of leading edge technology companies such as Apple and Microsoft. The full schedule of events and featured speakers are being finalized and will be announced in the coming weeks. The summit will be held at the House of Blues in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday, May 3 and Wednesday, May 4.
“Last years Digital Summit was a tremendous success. In fact, because of the response we received from our attendees we extended the summit two days this year so that we could increase the programming, expand content and elevate the experience for our guests,” said Bob Nichol, President and CEO of Southwest Media Group.
This year’s theme, Find Your Digital Soul, will focus on the roots of communication in a digital world. The summit will explore a brand’s “digital soul” and how consumers experience brands today through a variety of technologies, channels and new pathways as a result of the digital revolution. As disruptive as digital has been to traditional media, the “roots” of communication still remain.
The popular event will focus on the implications that digital plays for the future of media, advertising and connecting with consumers. Southwest Media Group will be going back to their roots as well by hosting the event at their original home – the building that now houses the House of Blues in Dallas. “We wanted a venue that reflected our heritage and contrasted the “soul” of communication with the energy and possibilities that digital brings,” said Steve Thomas, Chief Strategic Officer of Southwest Media Group and host for the event.
The Digital Summit is a VIP event that gives attendees a chance to see, hear and engage in a hands-on understanding of some of the latest in digital technology and the effect these changes are having on today’s media as well as gain an understanding of future trends. The Digital Summit offers an interactive forum with displays and presentations on a wide variety of subjects covering both the digital and traditional media world. The summit is an “invitation only” event. For information on the summit go to
