Opening Keynote Speaker

We are thrilled to have Greg Josken, digital marketing and social media manager for Disney Theatrical Group (DTG), as our opening keynote speaker.

For the past five years, Greg has overseen the content marketing strategy for all Broadway and domestic productions including THE LION KING, ALADDIN and NEWSIES. Working with partners across the company, Greg has developed unique online touch points from short form video, to user-generated content campaigns, to one-of-a-kind Virtual Reality experiences.
 
Greg manages an online community of more than 3 million users and produces content for the Disney on Broadway YouTube channel with 100 million views. Growing one of Broadway's largest online presences, Greg is dedicated to innovating not only within the live entertainment industry, but across The Walt Disney Company. He is based at the Disney Theatrical Group offices in New York City.
