Web Summit 2018
When: Monday, November 5, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to Thursday, November 8, 2018, at 10 p.m. UTC+1
At a time of great uncertainty for industry and the world itself, Web Summit 2018 gathers the founders and CEOs of technology companies, policymakers and heads of state to ask a simple question: where to next? With over 800 speakers, 70,000 people in attendance and conversation ranging from technology and data science to environmental sustainability, Web Summit offers vast networking and learning opportunities.
Our own John Saunders, FleishmanHillard Global CEO and president, will instruct brands and agencies on rebuilding trust in a so-called “fake news world.” In a session with Steve Clemons, Editor at Large for The Atlantic, attendees will learn about the steps which must be taken to rebuild consumer trust from a PR and marketing perspective, as well as a journalistic point of view. Rebuilding trust in a fake news world on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 12:10 p.m. UTC +1 will be one of the presentations at the PandaConf, a facet of Web Summit and one of the world’s premier marketing conferences, which will feature marketing-focused roundtables and workshops to explore the trends influencing the future of marketing.
Additionally, Saunders will participate in a panel discussion regarding building trust in the age of disinformation on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 10:45 a.m. UTC +1. In this Forum discussion, a track of Web Summit which discusses technology’s impact on today’s world, Saunders and speakers from the European Commission, CNN and the United Kingdom government will delve into the best methods of rebuilding trust in the era of post-truth politics.
Saunders will also hold a collaborative, in-depth roundtable discussion on restoring trust in today’s world on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 8:00 p.m. Registration for roundtables must be completed separately.
