#DML13, to be held on 30 and 31 October next in Bogotá, Colombia, has attracted some of the leading media figures from Latin America and beyond. In only its first year, the conference will feature some of the industry's leading experts on digital strategies, including Clark Gilbert, President and CEO of the Deseret News and Deseret Digital Media in the United States, Gastón Roitberg, Head of the Multimedia Desk at La Nación in Argentina, Rob Grimshaw, Managing Director of FT.com, and many others.

Ken Doctor, author of "Newsonomics: Twelve New Trends That Will Shape the News You Get" (St Martin's Press), and its companion website, newsonomics.com, recently opened the World Publishing Expo in Berlin, Germany, where he posed numerous hot-button questions to Axel Springer CEO Mathias Döpfner and Guardian CEO Andrew Miller. He highlighted some pointers heading into 2014 and will elaborate on them at Digital Media Latinoamérica.
