Nearly half of the speaking spots for the Streaming Media West show, taking place November 19-20 in Huntington Beach California, have already been filled. We’ve got confirmed speakers and presenters from Starz, A+E Television Networks, Google, Roku, Comcast, YouTube, The Tennis Channel, LG Electronics, DIRECTV, Redbox, HBO, Vevo, CNN, BBC, Fox Networks Group, CBS Interactive, University of Texas at Dallas, Oregon State University, University of Utah, Oracle, TechCrunch, CBC, Adobe, Cisco, Elemental Technologies, Haivision, Dolby, Ooyala and Ericsson amongst many more. We’ve also got analysts from firms including MRG, Frost & Sullivan, TDG Research and others.
The Streaming Media West website has been updated and now has the latest program details and list of confirmed speakers with another dozen or more speakers expected to be added this week.
The program is filling up even faster than it did last year, so if you owe me some kind of follow up regarding your speaking submission, or I am waiting to hear from you on next steps, please note that the program is closing fast. Once is it filled, it’s too late. I know some will be upset when they contact me six weeks before the show and want to know why they can’t speak, but I have a lot of speaking submissions and spots get filled based on who confirms first. So please contact me ASAP if I am waiting to hear back from you.
Some people want me to chase them down for weeks, which I will not do. If you are offered a speaking spot, and two or three emails from me later you still have not followed up, I will_not_wait for_you, and will move on to the next company. So please, be responsive with emails and thorough with follow-up or your opportunity will go to someone else. I know some shows place speakers last minute, but I don’t do that, unless there is a cancellation. I plan to have all speakers place by October 9th, which is exactly 4 weeks from today.
