Social Campaigns that Work: Lessons from the Wine Industry

Speakers: Jim Sullivan

Given the hyper-competitive nature of the wine business, it’s essential that participants take full advantage of the opportunities offered by social engagement. The winning strategies and tactics used by the more successful players in the field provide lessons for anyone who wants to enhance their visibility, customer satisfaction, drive sales and evangelize their brand. In this session we will discuss the best tools and techniques for creating campaigns that get results.

3:20 – 4:00pm

Is Silicon Valley grabbing the Torch from Hollywood?

Speakers: Barry Schuler

It’s no secret that the sands are shifting constantly and dramatically in the world of entertainment, film, and video. Between the global move to mobile delivery, democratized content creation, IP and patent litigation, file format battles, and a myriad of other accelerants and friction points — it’s clear that the way we create and consume media is undergoing dramatic transformation.

No one understands the opportunity (and turmoil) in this space better than VC Barry Schuler. In his role as CEO of America Online Inc., he was a key player in the merging of AOL’s digital distribution channels and Time Warner’s traditional content business. His current role as managing director of the Draper Fisher Jurvetson Growth Fund has him funding and working closely with some of the most successful players in mobile and social media.

In this panel, Barry will be talking to entrepreneurs in the content and delivery space about what the future holds, and who is best poised to win (and lose) in the years ahead.

4:10 – 5:00pm
