About the Retreat

Now in its sixth year, industry leaders will meet on the island of Vieques for three unique days of high-level seminars, networking and video interviews.   The program will involve just 35 participants.  (The wild horses seen in this video produced by Beet.TV comprise just one of the extraordinary aspects of the small island, nine miles off the eastern shore of Puerto Rico. More on the island’s horses here.)

Topics will include video monetization and distribution, programmatic TV,  addressable TV, the role of data in ad targeting,  emerging platforms for distribution, the changing role of creative and  the impact of consumer preference.

The location is the W Retreat and Spa on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico.
