... vdonxt asia is back!

Positioned as an event for and about those who live by the promise of digital video, vdonxt asia promises to deliver several stimulating discussions around the subject. What are the monetisation strategies that publishers can look to? In the context of digital video, what are the issues faced by content creators, producers and advertisers? How have marketers' expectations of brand integration changed over the past year? In fact, do young marketers prefer working with agencies, production houses or independent creative talent?
