I attended the Jordan, Edmiston Group, Inc. (JEGI) Media & Technology Conference yesterday in New York City along with over 200 CEOs, CMOs and other executives from leading publishers, marketing service providers and technology vendors. For those who don’t know JEGI they are the leading independent investment bank focusing on media, information and marketing services sector. The program was outstanding covering critical issues including:

  • Getting Closer to the Consumer with Smarter Data
  • The Continuing Rise of Big Data
  • The Talent Imperative
  • The Media Equation: Paid + Owned + Earned

There were also presentations about the active M&A scene in the industry by JEGI, G.E. Capital and others. The main messages were deals are up and valuations are rising since lows back in 2009. The only grey cloud is the European sovereign debt situation which is mostly hampering large deals.

The highlight of the program were keynote presentations from:

  • Thomas Quinlan, CEO, R.R. Donnelley & Sons
  • David Williams, CEO, Merkle (largest customer relationship marketing agency in the U.S.)
  • George Colony, CEO, Forrester Research
