DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ad:tech, the event for modern media, today announces the annual ad:tech West Coast event, the longest-running marketing and media event in the industry, will relocate from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 2016.
As a conference that prides itself on being on the cusp of what’s next, moving the ad:tech event from San Francisco to Los Angeles was a natural next step to continue delivering that vision. Los Angeles is the fastest growing technology startup region in the United States, and is currently the third largest technology startup ecosystem in the nation. It’s also home to some of the biggest rising stars in the industry and is known for applying technology, which allows marketers and advertisers to further create synergies within the marketing and tech industries.
“We are poised for the future as we embark on this new adventure in a fantastic city,” said Rebecca Jennings, show director. “While saying goodbye to San Francisco wasn’t an easy decision, Los Angeles was the top choice among attendees when compared to other cities.”
Next year’s event will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The two-day ad:tech Los Angeles event will take place on May 11-12, and will feature industry-leading keynote speakers, an expo floor showcasing the latest technology solution providers and a packed conference agenda led by world-renowned marketers from top brands and agencies.
ad:tech is a conference and exhibition where the marketing, technology and media communities come together to share new ways of thinking, build strong partnerships, and define new strategies to address key industry challenges and opportunities. Several annual events around the world focus on top-notch education through keynote speakers, topic-driven panels and workshops as well as showcase the latest products and services to help deepen understanding and create new ideas that will drive business forward.
