The Digital Place-based Advertising Association announced today that Nancy Hill, president and CEO of the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A's), will be the opening speaker at the DPAA's fourth annual Digital Media Summit at the New York Marriott Marquis on Oct. 19.
The day–long event (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) will examine critical topics related to digital place-based media, including contextual engagement and planning strategies, and feature case studies presented by leading national advertisers, according to the DPAA. An exhibit hall also will be open to attendees.
The DPAA said it expects more than 400 people to attend this year's event, up from 300 last year.

"Everyone recognizes the value of reaching consumers at the right place and right time, and this year's conference will really drill down into how brands are tapping into this value in new and creative ways."
