As home to thousands of independently-owned interactive businesses, Atlanta is the perfect place for the Southeast’s leading digital technology conference.
Atlanta (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Digital Atlanta 2013, the Southeast's premier digital media and interactive conference, is announcing early bird registration pricing. Now in its fourth year, the event will take place October 7-11 at Atlantic Station in midtown Atlanta and offer five days of interactive programming. More than 1,500 digital enthusiasts at all levels, including executives, artists, entrepreneurs, educators, civic and nonprofit leaders will participate in educational workshops, thought provoking panels, product demonstrations and networking opportunities. The conference will also cover development, UX design, sports, mobile media, entertainment and more.
The keynote speaker this year is Bill Nussey, CEO of Silverpop, an Atlanta-based digital marketing technology provider. Nussey will address where digital is going over the next 18 months to three years and beyond. The five-day conference will also feature speakers from companies such as Delta, Coca-Cola, W Hotels, Turner, Suntrust and JWT.

"As the Southeast continues to emerge as a leader in the technology industry, Atlanta has established itself as a hub for digital and interactive innovation," said Bill Nussey. "I am proud to have the opportunity to address and learn from the digital leaders of today and tomorrow."
In past years, the conference was subsidized strictly with sponsorship funding. This year, in order to expand the range of sessions and offer a fifth day of programming, there will be a nominal registration charge to attend. Tickets also include three evening events, including a digital art exhibition hosted in partnership with WonderRoot. Early Bird pricing of $25 begins today and runs through September 6, after which time tickets will be $40.
In addition, attendees are automatically registered to attend Tech Cocktail’s Atlanta Mixer and Startup Showcase, which takes place the first night of Digital Atlanta on Monday, October 7. This is the first time Tech Cocktail is bringing its signature pitching event to Atlanta, and the winner will go on to compete in Tech Cocktail’s national competition in Las Vegas later in October.
"We are grateful for our growing list of partners, including Tech Cocktail, and sponsors who are helping us continue to connect entrepreneurs with digital thought leaders from around the world," said Bert DuMars, Digital Atlanta founder and Vice President, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research. "As home to thousands of independently-owned interactive businesses, Atlanta is the perfect place for the Southeast’s leading digital technology conference."
