Joe Zaller | April 2, 2018

It’s now less than a week until the 2018 Devoncroft Executive Summit: The Business of Media Technology.

The full agenda is available here, and information about all speakers and panelists is available here.

Please Note NEW Location – the Devoncroft Summit is NOT in the LVCC this year

We’ve also included below a snapshot of who is attending the 2018 Summit, along with information about all panels and speakers at the event.

With nearly 700 delegates registered so far, we’re expecting a capacity crowd again this year. Registration information is available here.

Prices are set to increase this week (unless Villanova wins the NCAA college basketball championship, in which case we’ll probably change our minds!).

Here’s a sample of who is attending the 2018 Devoncroft Summit.
