Policy Events in the Digital Age

Cato Digital
January 16, 2013 1:00 PM to 2:15 PM EST

Policy Center with Foyer

Featuring Rob Bluey, Director of Digital Media, Heritage Foundation; Brian Donahue, Partner, CRAFT Media/​Digital; Chad Barth, Politics & Government Manager, EventBrite; Michael Duncan, Communications Manager, FreedomWorks; moderated by Caleb Brown, Director of Multimedia, Cato Institute.

Organizations in Washington, think tanks especially, host hundreds if not thousands of policy‐​related events a year. They cost a lot of money to organize, cater, and produce, and they’ve been doing them largely the same way since anyone can remember. But could they be more effective at engaging people, especially online?

Groups like TED have found a lot of success crafting events for the digital space, but it’s not clear everyone else has caught on. Please join us for a discussion of better integrating events with digital and social media, creating viral policy content, and more.
