Future of Media panel at the Drake will explore "landmark" tech innovation

A panel discussion entitled "The Future of Media" at the Drake Hotel on September 8 will feature executives from Facebook Canada, the Globe and Mail, Polar Mobile and a founder of the MESH conference. The event will see discussion of how technology and the internet -- including social media and mobile devices -- are changing the landscape for traditional news media. The event is hosted by Toronto-based publication Digital Journal.

In the event's announcement, Steve MacFarlane of online ad sales organization Suite 66 says that the annual event has become a landmark of media innovation in Canada. "The Future of Media conference is emerging as a focal point in the discussion of how digital media continues to grow and evolve in response to new technology and consumer demand," he says.

The panelists, announced last week, are: Jordan Banks, managing director of Facebook Canada; Anjali Kapoor, managing editor of the Globe and Mail Digital; David Skok, senior producer of online content for Global News; Kunal Gupta, CEO of Polaris Mobile; and Mark Evans, a co-founder of the MESH conference.

Admission to the event is free and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
