Outsell Inc. Outsell Signature Event 2020

What is the Outsell Signature Event?

The Outsell Signature Event, now in its 14th year, is always a game-changer for CEO, COOs, Presidents, and Managing Directors in the global data and information industry. We’re bringing the best minds together to address what’s on every CEO’s mind and promise to leave you inspired, energized, and with new perspectives.

This year’s Outsell Signature Event, co-produced with JEGI CLARITY, will be held virtually November 10-12. We’ve got a jam-packed program, made by and for CEOs. This year’s theme is Radical Reinvention: Preparing for 2021 and What’s Ahead.

We’ll focus on the overarching issues that set the context for how we’re operating. Economic outlook? Check. Geopolitical outlook? Check. COVID-19 outlook and separating fact from fiction? Check. Information industry and M&A outlook? Check. Check.

We’ll also focus on the radical reinvention shaping our industry through case studies, videos, and live debates. The future of work? Check. Next UI and the death of text? Check. Monetizing digital events and integrating them with the community? Check yet again. Reinventing iconic brands? Participating in data marketplaces? Using AI in your offerings? Check, check, check.

Why Attend?

Aside from powerful industry networking, sharing insights with the best in the business, meeting new people, and getting deals done, you will have what you need to meet the demands of business and face 2020 with essentials in hand.
