Highlighting this year’s One Day Immersion in TV, Cable & Digital Entertainment conference is a dynamic keynote by Dane Kunkel, chief executive officer and founder of BeachGlow: Concerts for Charity, a non-profit organization that creates and produces cutting-edge music festivals to raise awareness among young adults about societal issues and causes.

The full program is subject to change and will be announced this summer.
“As a college student myself, I’m thrilled at this opportunity to share with my peers my personal experience of founding and running a non-profit company whose mission is all about inspiring young people – through the power of electronic music -- to give back to young people,” said BeachGlow’s CEO, Dane Kunkel. “One Day Immersion will allow students to hear about and benefit from the challenges I’ve faced, the ups and downs, the heart aches, and the huge rewards from passionately throwing myself head-first into the entertainment industry, and combining it with doing good.”
“We are honored to partner with Dolly Wolf Enterprises for One Day Immersion, and to host this conference at the Schimmel Center for the Arts,” said Neil Braun, dean, Pace University Lubin School of Business. ”We look forward to a full day of dynamic interaction between today’s media industry leaders and tomorrow’s future executives, thought leaders and technology innovators.”
