Battle for Engagement: Building Digital Subscriptions & New Ad Experiences for Loyal Users


Two key topics for our Digital Media Europe 2019 conference in Vienna this spring were digital subscriptions and new ad experiences for logged-in users.

Offering a mix of panel discussions, intimate Q&As and extensive networking opportunities, DME19 examined solutions to the issues facing publishers today.

DME19 also saw more interaction than ever before in helping participants to discover best practices for growing their digital revenues.

We are also grateful for the support from our colleagues at VÖZ, APA and Styria Digital.
