Meet Tim at:

Keynote: A Times Square Moment
Date/Time: 9:00 AM

It’s been called the “crossroads of the world,” but as far as digital out-of-home media is concerned, Times Square is clearly its epicenter. In a behind-the-scenes look at the ad industry’s digital Mecca, Time  Square Alliance President Tim Tompkins will describe a new program, Times Square Moment: A Digital Gallery, which is a joint effort by the Times Square Advertising Coalition and the Alliance designed to transform the most famous intersection on the planet into a spectacular new showcase for art and creative content.  He will preview the new program for the screens in Times Square - dubbed the “world’s most exciting canvass” – and what that means for brand marketers and agencies alike.
