Top Execs from Google, Penton & Randall-Reilly to Keynote Conference on Integration of Information and Media Industries November 10-12 in Miami

New Event to Focus on Digital Media, Advertising, Marketing, and Big Data

Washington, DC, August 02, 2014 --( The Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) – the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries – today announced that top digital content and B2B media executives from Google, Penton, Bloomberg and other industry-leading companies will speak at the Business Information & Media Summit (BIMS). This new conference will focus on the continuing transformation of the information and media industries. BIMS will take place November 10-12 in Miami, Fla., and will address the four markets that are dramatically impacting the B2B media landscape: big data, marketing, digital media and advertising.

As the lines which once separated big data, marketing, digital media and advertising fade away, the Business Information & Media Summit will gather industry leaders to address challenges and opportunities in an increasingly integrated marketplace. Reflecting this, the conference will feature keynotes from:

· Patricia Arundel – Head of Media & High Tech, Google Enterprise
Using her expertise developing strategies that enable Fortune 500 companies to innovate across mobility, productivity and social computing, Arundel will discuss “How to Gain Competitive Advantage in the Digital Age.” As high-tech enterprises max out the value of globalization and low-cost outsourced labor, her presentation will identify new ways to achieve competitive advantage in consumer and business markets.

· David Kieselstein – Chief Executive Officer, Penton
Kieselstein’s keynote will draw on his experience leading the largest privately held business information services company in North America. Kieselstein has driven a rapid transformation of Penton and with it a rapid increase in revenues and profitability by executing on a three-pronged strategy driving innovation and growth.

· Brent Reilly – President, Randall-Reilly
As president of Randall-Reilly, Reilly has made several strategic changes to help the firm complete its transformation into a top marketing services company which provides insights into specific market segments and then engages those audiences through targeted platforms. Reilly’s industry experience reflects the diversity of the Business & Information Media Summit, as he formerly served as vice president of marketing for the company and general manager of operations for Randall-Reilly’s Events.

Members of the media are invited to attend. For more information or to register for the conference, members of the media should contact Farrah Kim at

These keynote speakers will join a roster of other senior executives who will speak at the Business Information & Media Summit:

· Robert Passarella – Business Manager for Event Driven News Feeds, Bloomberg L.P.
· Keith White – Executive Vice President & Managing Director, CQ-Roll Call Group
· John Nicodemo – Global Leader of Worldwide Data & Predictive Insights, Dun & Bradstreet (D&B)
