What a fantastic, productive Q1 starting with CES, then our incredible Beet Retreat in Vieques, the IAB Annual Meeting in Palm Springs, and this week in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress.

Next month we are in LA for the 4A’s annual meeting  then up to San Francisco on March 25 for our summit on the automation of television advertising buying with Magna Global and others.

What a Beet Retreat!!!

The highlight has been the annual Beet Retreat which was held at the W on Vieques in January.  Huge thanks to our moderators Erick Schonfeld and Ashley J. Swartz, and to the presenting sponsor Videology and our principal sponsor AOL.   You find our videos here – and there is much more to be published!

Great segments with executives from AOL, Dailymotion, Google, comScore, Nielsen, The New York Times, the Washington Post, Digitas, GroupM, Starcom MediaVest, Magna Global, Taboola, Videology and many others.     A photo of the the entire happy crew is published on this page.  It was awesome.

In fact, the feedback has been so positive that we will very likely do another Retreat at another location, before our next one in Vieques.  Stay tuned.

Las Vegas — A Great CES

We kicked off the year in Las Vegas at CES.   It was great to partner with Mindshare and Jordan Bitterman on the news-making “Client Huddle” series which you can find here.   We partnered with Starcom MediaVest on videos about content marketing.   Special thanks to our friends at MediaLink for providing Beet.TV access to report at the best parties of CES.  You can find all our coverage right here.

Adap.tv Global Programmatic Publisher Conference  in NYC

We produced a series from the Adap.tv programmatic publisher conference with segments with executives from AOL, the BBC, The Guardian, the Weather Company and others.  You can find the series right here.

IAB in the Desert

It was terrific  to catch up with some many luminaries in our industry.  Thanks to Randy Rothenberg and the staff of the IAB for welcoming us and to Collective who sponsored.  You can find our coverage here.

DATELINE BARCELONA: Hola Mobile World Congress!

We are in Barcelona, reporting and publishing.   You can find a few our clips here.  Much more to come.  Thanks to InMobi for sponsoring our coverage and bring us to Spain!  Mucho gracias.

Off to LA to 4A’s — then to San Francisco 

Really looking forward to cover the 4A’s annual meeting.  This will be our first time  covering and are delighted to be to partnering with  Simulmedia, the series sponsor.    Then we  head up to San Francisco for a leadership summit on March 25 on the transformation of TV ad buying via social, data and programmatic technology.  More on that to come shortly.

A Big April….

We will be back to Las Vegas to cover the big NAB Show with Adobe, then back to New York for the Digital Content NewFronts with AOL and more!
