This week, Alley partner and Chief Strategy Officer Brad Campeau-Laurion and Director of Marketing and Business Development Amanda Shareghi will join 600 media leaders at the GEN Summit in Vienna, Austria.
On June 16th, Brad Campeau-Laurion will present a masterclass to teach organizations how to publish efficiently to platforms like AMP, Facebook Instant Articles, and Apple News. Brad will be discussing not only the tools themselves, but also the architectural and workflow decisions made to implement these tools.
GEN Summit brings together journalism luminaries from around the world to examine journalism trends, media technology, and newsroom development. The focus this year is on what they describe as journalism “frenemies” — technology giants like Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Snapchat whose missions have grown to encompass news and advertising platforms. Alley is one of the partners of the Summit, along with the AP, Google, the Knight Foundation, and other media innovators.
The Summit is June 15th-17th. Follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #GENSUMMIT.
