Each year, we ask readers to help us build The Beat Live conference.
Your feedback will determine one of our keynote speakers, identify the recipients of our annual Readers' Choice awards and formulate questions for the industry influencers taking the stage in Arlington, Va., Sept. 29–Oct. 1.
The Beat has received thought-provoking pitches from an array of industry players for the keynote vote. Only the top vote-getter nabs a solo stint on stage at The Beat Live, but five runners-up will participate in a panel discussion.
