About the Event:

At the W Fort Lauderdale, one of the most talked about media industry events will return on November 11-13. It is the Beet Retreat, which is both a high-level executive retreat – and a made-for-TV show taping.

Unlike past Retreats, which covered a wide range of digital video topics, the November event will focus on the dramatic transition in television. This will include the rise of “addressable” TV, programmatic TV, advertising around VOD and “TV everywhere.” We will also explore the state of content distribution and consumption via cable, satellite and OTT services.

There will be just 35 speaker/panelists for three days of in-depth, staged sessions, video interviews and networking activities. We will also host 20 “special participants” who will join the sessions and networking events.

For MVPD’s, cable nets and technology/data providers, the event will be a valuable presentation opportunity, coupled with informal face-time, before highly influential media agency executives and brands.

For the media agency and brand executives, they will learn about the fast-changing TV landscape and emerging opportunities. They will meet the most innovative technologists, operators and broadcasters in the industry.

For everyone, the level of networking, learning, business development and video exposure will be unique and powerful.

All participants will be part of Beet.TV segments: one from the staged sessions and another via the studio interview. All the segments will be widely syndicated.
