ABM downsizes Digital Velocity conference

Published on .

New York—American Business Media has altered the format of its Digital Velocity conference, which was slated for March 3–4, ABM President-CEO Gordon T. Hughes II said Thursday.

The conference, which was to be at the McGraw-Hill Building, will now be held at ABM’s headquarters in New York. The entire conference will take place as a half-day event March 3, from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

Hughes said that due to the state of the economy, fewer people had registered for this year’s Digital Velocity conference, which debuted in 2000. In past years, the event had attracted about 250 people; this year’s event will accommodate 50. Hughes said the event will be streamed live, and portions will be converted into archived webinars.

The revamped Digital Velocity will provide a template for ABM events for the foreseeable future, with the exception of the Annual Meeting and Top Management Meeting, which will remain multiday events, Hughes said.
