Since 2012, the Devoncroft Executive Summit has brought together a global audience of senior executives from broadcasters, media companies, service providers, technology suppliers, cloud platforms, and investment firms, making it the one event where business leaders from across the value chain can debate and discuss the most important commercial issues facing the industry, outline their strategic plans for success, share best practices, and network with peers including both buyers and suppliers of media technology.

Imagine Communications was proud to be the 2021 Devoncroft Executive Summit title sponsor.

Sky Media has been successfully selling this way for 20 years. Join this session to get insight on why they did it, how they did it, and the real-world benefits they’ve achieved by changing the paradigm of linear advertising.
