It’s Consumer First in TV Land, the Beet Retreat San Juan, November 28-30

The Beet Retreat, one of the industry’s most talked about gatherings of high-level media executives, will take place November 28-30 at the San Juan Marriott Resort.

The event will involve three days of high-level panels, group conversations, one-on-one video interviews and extraordinary networking events and interactions.

Part industry enclave and part a made-for-TV setting, the event will provide essential industry intelligence and connections with the people who matter.  For the participants, it will provide exposure via videos on Beet.TV along with high-impact social media. The Retreat will provide unique business development opportunities and enduring professional relationships.

The event is limited to just 50 participants. In addition, there will be 50 special participants – attendees who will network and interact with the group but will not be on stage.  The entire group will not exceed 100.

The Theme:  It’s All About the Consumer

The conference will explore how consumer preference is driving the transformation of the TV/premium video business. It will be about relevance:  What consumers want and what is the value exchange and where is the upside for programmers, distributors and marketers.

The program will explore the creative advertising formats and strategies; the best use of data in audience targeting; the changing state of addressable TV; opportunities on various platforms;  and how impact is measured around performance.  The program will explore developments in the U.S. and worldwide.

Helping Puerto Rico

This year, in the aftermath of Puerto Rico’s recovery from Maria, some in the group will elect to take the opportunity to spend the two free afternoons problem solving and mentoring the island’s young people.   For these projects, we will join our San Juan colleagues from Hearts & Science and GroupM and key marketers at the University of the Sacred Heart. We will also work with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico.  (Part of this effort will be associated with The Drum’s worldwide Do It Day.)

Seven Sponsorship Opportunities

There are four presenting sponsors, two dinner sponsors, and one community action sponsor. These sponsorships will have enduring impact, beyond the event, through months and years of sharing of content which will continue to be associated with the sponsor. Moreover, the sponsorship provides a sort of “ownership” of the event in terms of programming input, speaker selection and very high impact visibility.

The sponsorship also provides domain exclusivity to bar those deemed competitive.

We expect there will over 250,000 video views of the Retreat videos over the subsequent three months and at least one million impressions via marketing and social. This consumption will be by key media buyers, programmers, networks, MVPD’s, technology companies, data providers, investors and industry analysts.
