Street Fight co-founder David Hirschman will be moderating a hyperlocal-themed panel at the DD Summit Europe, which will take place on March 19th in London. The summit, which is the first of its kind in Europe, comes on the heels of several successful deals conferences in the U.S. last year.
There are over 1500 daily dealers currently operating in Europe, and Stavros Prodromou, the conference’s organizer, says that the event is meant to spur collaborations and partnerships between the various companies working in the space. He notes in a release that media throughout Europe have begun to jump on the daily deals bandwagon, as traditional newspapers and magazines have partnered with white label platforms to offer deal products to their readers.
Hirschman’s panel on “hyperlocal best approaches” will look at how location-based services are changing the way that deals are structured, sold, and redeemed — and how deal companies can leverage location to make deals more timely, more relevant, and more compelling for consumers.
Confirmed speakers at the conference include Peter Briffet, the U.K. managing director for LivingSocial; Gerard Doyle, the CEO of Discount Vouchers; Omid Ashtari, European director of business development for Foursquare; Kevin Wray, VP of marketing and business development at Nimble Commerce; Cheryl Yeoh, the founder and CEO of CityPockets; and many more.
