From 5 to 7 June, Audencia will yet again be an integral part of this year’s Web2day Festival, the gathering place for all things digital which is being held in Nantes.
Undergraduates on the Audencia SciencesCom bachelor’s programme will be playing an active role during the 3-day event: as part of the team of volunteers, they will be helping greet an expected 7,000 festival goers as well as helping out during the conferences and manning the newsroom with live tweets, photos and videos.
What’s more, Audencia SciencesCom is organising a roundtable dedicated to Podcasts in the context of new practices and business models across the media. This is scheduled to take place on 6 June and gracing the stage will be Marianne Le Vavasseur, Head of Ad Sales at Deezer, Mathieu Gallet, Former CEO of Radio France and Founder of Majelan, Edouard Reis Carona, in charge of digital strategy at SIPA Group Ouest-France, Serge Schick, Head of strategic marketing and brand development for the Radio France Group and Estelle Prusker, Audencia Mediacampus Manager.
The “Cantine” in Nantes has been in charge of organising the event for the past 11 years and, once again, this year’s Web2day festival is set to be held under the naves at Stereolux and at various venues around the Ile de Nantes. The event is a magnet for attracting start-ups, project leaders, large companies, students, journalists and investors, and offers up 200 conferences hosted by 250 guest speakers. This year, for the first time ever, the Festival will also have a “talent showcase area” at the heart of the village. In particular, companies such as Capgemini, Sogeti, Accenture, ASI, OUI.sncf or even Lucca will be coming along to meet with their future talent pool.
