Save the Date: Next VideoSchmooze Is On Thursday, Dec. 4th in NYC

VideoNuze.com Analysis - Tue, 09/30/2014 - 09:17

Please save the date for the next VideoSchmooze: Online Video Leadership Forum, on Thursday, December 4th, at the Scholastic Auditorium in NYC. This will be the 11th VideoSchmooze and as with all of the previous ones, it will be a top-notch morning of learning and networking with video industry leaders. Continental breakfast will begin at 7:45am and we'll conclude by 12:30pm before lunch.

2014 has been another incredible year of growth for online and mobile video. Viewers continue to dramatically change their behaviors, with content choices exploding and connected devices for video proliferating. Incumbents are scrambling to adapt while startups continue to innovate. All are positioning themselves for billions of dollars of video-related spending by consumers and advertisers that are up for grabs.

As with prior VideoSchmoozes, we'll have an impressive array of sessions and speakers, which I'll announce soon, along with special early-bird registration. Last year we had 250+ attendees and I'm confident we'll have a similarly strong turnout this year too. For industry executives who need to cut through the noise and understand what's really happening in video, VideoSchmooze is a must-attend event.

I'm delighted to have Brightcove, FreeWheel and Tremor Video on board so far as sponsors for this VideoSchmooze. Additional opportunities are available, please contact me if interested.
