Quick Bite Solutions

Research & Development partners are invited to submit proposals – by Nov. 14 – for 20-minute "Quick Bite Solutions" segments to be held throughout the 2015 Key Executives Mega-Conference. 

These 13 "Quick Bite Solutions" offer R&D partners the opportunity to present real-life examples showing how a newspaper/digital operation can grow audience and/or revenue by using their solution.  Because these will be featured parts of the program, the topic must be approved and content must be reviewed in advance by the program committee.

These segments will run during four time frames at the conference:  concurrent to the pre-conference bonus session on Monday morning, and during three time frames on Tuesday afternoon.  On Tuesday afternoon, attendees will be able to choose between three Quick Bite sessions that will run concurrently at a given time.  The Tuesday afternoon Quick Bites will not conflict with General Session programming.

Quick Bite Solutions Format: 

Length:  12 minutes maximum presentation time; allows eight minutes for Q&A.   Case study format suggested.

Suggested Outline:  What is the opportunity your solution can address? What does success look like?  What steps must the publisher take to be successful (for example: how to start, what resources they will need to invest, etc.)? What does your company bring to the table?
