10th Annual COPA Awards Party
State of Digital Seminar

The COPAs after 10 years has become the badge of honour in the Canadian publishing industry for excellence in online content. This year’s 10th Anniversary COPA Party will be more of a red carpet affair and will be held at the historic Eglinton Grand in Toronto. We hope to bring a little bit of Hollywood” sizzle to this year’s party. The State of Digital seminar will explore the ad sales side of the equation this year as sponsored content is growing in momentum, the effectiveness or lack of web display advertising and the impact of social media in the marketing mix.

 

Date: Wednesday, Nov. 14
State of Digital Seminar: 4-6 pm EST
COPA Cocktail reception – 6-7:30pm (buffet food, cash bar)
COPA Awards Event – 7:30-10pm
Place: Eglinton Grand Theatre

 

State of Digital Seminar Overview
How to compete with the Digital Titans
The digital publishing industry faces an uncertain future with the dominance of Google and Facebook and not just on the paid adverting side of the publisher’s equation. With web display advertising rates in the ad networks hovering around $1-$2 CPM, how can publishers compete and stay profitable. The next part of the equation is the disruptive impact of social media that lets advertisers talk directly to their customers bypassing the media middleman. Brands like Smirnoff have over 9 million Facebook followers worldwide. The seminar will look at ad sales solutions from multiple viewpoints for both the consumer and B2B publishers perspective.
