It has been a great year of networking and learning at BIA/Kelsey events – which focus on “what’s important and why” in local. Our biggest show of the year is ILM West, which has attracted 600-700 senior level execs in recent editions. It is common for industry executives to ask each other: “Will I see you at ILM?”
This year’s event takes place Dec. 4-6 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles – a favorite venue. It’s been beautifully renovated, but we still like to mull over its history. Ronald Reagan actually had his office in the executive suite upstairs. Downstairs, in the ballroom, the Oscars used to be held. The outdoor pool has long been a center of LA society.
Some of the top newsmakers are already set for this year’s event, along with the new brands for their companies. We’ll eventually have 50+ speakers, but here’s an initial list:
David Krantz, CEO, YP
Scott Moore, CDO, hibu
Jason Fingerr, CEO, CityGrid Media
Mike Hodges, President and COO, U-T San Diego
James Moroney III, CEO, Dallas Morning News
Dave Galvan, CEO, The Learning Annex
Doug Neil, SVP, Digital, NBC-Universal
