JUNE 8TH, Wednesday

Ventana Room
Keynote Presentation: Transforming How We Watch the News

Since the advent of the remote control in 1955, TV viewers and advertisers haven't stopped demanding more and more "control" of the TV experience. In this keynote presentation, CNN Chief Product Officer, Alex Wellen, will take us on CNN's journey to reimagine news with the introduction of CNNgo, a mobile-first and connected-TV video experience that "puts the consumer in the control room." From native advertising to sampling to binging, Wellen will demo the latest incarnation of CNNgo that offers a deep library of on-demand content, news clips, original programming, and live breaking news. 

The keynote will then take a look ahead at five immersive new ways consumers and marketers are discovering and engaging with video across the latest OTT devices and advanced set-top boxes. Whether it's coverage of the 2016 presidential election, a developing story out of North Korea, or Anthony Bourdain's latest excursion in Senegal, there's never been a more extraordinary (and disruptive) time across the news landscape.
