The Westchester Digital Summit – an annual conference offering insight from globally-recognized digital professionals and tremendous networking opportunities – has been featured by Forbes as one of ten “Must-Attend Marketing Conferences for Leaders in 2014.”
Forbes Contributing Editor John Hall writes: “If you are an entrepreneur looking to network with a variety of power players, you might be drawn to the posh Westchester surroundings of this conference.” Hall adds: “[The conference] promises to provide attendees with energized and gritty commentary from a diverse group of speakers from some of the largest brands in the world.”
This marks the second time the Summit has found itself on a Forbes list, following last year’s placement on “Four Lesser-Known Conferences That Deserve Your Attention in 2013.” “We are honored by the consistent support we have received from the editors at Forbes,” said Chris Dessi, CEO of Silverback Social and producer of the Westchester Digital Summit. “With our unbelievable panels and some remarkable surprises on the way, we are confident that the Westchester Digital Summit will more than live up to the hype.”
To date, there are 16 confirmed panel members representing a wide range of industries. Speakers hail from impressive companies like ESPN, LinkedIn, Facebook, IBM and The Huffington Post, among others; as well as prestigious non-profits like The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
The keynote speaker will be New York Times bestselling author Gary Vaynerchuk. As founder of Vayner Media, Vaynerchuk works with numerous Fortune 500 companies to develop digital and social media strategies and content. Businessweek selected him as one of the top twenty people every entrepreneur should follow, and CNN voted him one of the top twenty-five tech investors on Twitter.
