#TVnext 2013 Announced!

Mike Proulx

We had much success and a ton of fun with last year’s TVnext℠ Summit. A lot happens in a year – especially in the modern world of television. And they say three’s a charm, so here it is – our 3rd annual TVnext℠ Summit – on Monday April 29, 2013 at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art.

Belief + Behavior
The theme of our 2013 TVnext Summit is Belief + Behavior—What we've believed to be true with television versus our modern behaviors around the over seven decade medium. And in that vein, we’ve planned a fast-paced day of content that challenges our longstanding beliefs and reveals insights giving us a glimpse of television’s future as new media.

2013 Keynotes
We have a killer lineup of speakers that we’ll be announcing soon and we’re super excited to feature Twitter’s Fred Graver and NPR’s Neda Ulaby.

FRED GRAVER - Twitter

Fred leads the TV Team at Twitter. The team is responsible for integrating Twitter into broadcasts and networks, extending the reach of shows and talent, innovating new ways of storytelling, and giving millions of Twitter users a new way of enjoying television.

Fred’s career spans comedy writing and producing (Late Night With David Letterman, Cheers, In Living Color, Jon Stewart), interactive producing (The MY Vh1 Awards, ZoogDisney), and creating shows that span the web and television (Best Week Ever). He has 7 Emmy Nominations (including one for the post-9/11 “Concert for New York City) and 3 Emmys, as well as a NAACP award and a Webby.

NEDA ULABY - NPR

Neda reports on arts, entertainment, and cultural trends for NPR's Arts Desk. Scouring the various and often overlapping worlds of art, music, television, film, new media and literature, Ulaby's radio and online stories reflect political and economic realities, cultural issues, obsessions and transitions, as well as artistic adventurousness— and awesomeness.

Over the last few years, Ulaby has strengthened NPR's television coverage both in terms of programming and industry coverage. Her profiles have brought listeners into the worlds of such performers as Tyler Perry, Ryan Seacrest, Mark Ruffalo, and Courtney Love.

1968

In 1968, Jay Hill, Alan Holliday, Jack Connors and Steve Cosmopulos founded an agency in Boston based on the principle that creativity could drive business. Forty five years later, we're still operating on that very same premise, albeit with a few more people. Today, there are more than 900 of us who work at Hill Holliday. Together, we are the 13th largest ad agency in the United States. It's very nice to meet you.
