We’re excited to announce the newest edition of the [a]list summit is coming on April 20. We’re bringing the event up to the Pacific Northwest city of Seattle. The last time the [a]list summit was held in the city was back in 2012 and at that time the theme was “evolve.” Since then, both [a]list summit as an event and the brands who have participated have indeed evolved. 

The theme for this year’s Seattle summit held at W hotel is Frontline Marketing. As usual you can expect to hear from progressive media companies and forward-thinking Fortune 500 companies which personify what it means to be frontline – going beyond looking at just engagement and adopting a synergistic approach to meeting consumers’ desires more effectively.

“Seattle is thrilled to welcome the 12th [a]list summit. This city is a natural for the event, with 10 Fortune-500 companies based throughout the region and a technology brain trust that influences innovation across the globe,” says David Blandford, V.P., Communications at Visit Seattle, Seattle and King County’s official marketing organization.

Some of the hottest topics of discussion so far this year on [a]listdaily is also making it’s way into the summit program. We’ll be tackling subjects like streaming, podcasting, eSports and augmented and virtual reality.

We’re excited that long-time [a]listdaily friend Jim Louderback has agreed to MC this year’s event. Many of you know him from VidCon, past [a]list summits, or his long career as a trailblazer in online video.

We’ll have many exciting speakers to announce in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, we want to hear from you. What topics are you the most curious hearing more about?
