The upcoming StreamGeeks Summit in New York City Nov. 8 promises the latest in live streaming education.
The full-day event will be an opportunity for students, as well as business professionals, to learn about live streaming, video production and the latest streaming platforms, including Facebook Live, LinkedIn Live, Twitch and YouTube.
Consider a trip to New York with your broadcast club, and allow your group to experience a whole new perspective on the broadcast industry. This is what you’ll experience:
• Panel sessions with industry leaders at the beautiful Dream Downtown Hotel in Chelsea
• A keynote discussion by Geoffrey Colon, the Head of Microsoft Advertising Brand Studio and author of “Disruptive Marketing.”
• Collaboration and the opportunity to mingle with the industry’s top live streamers
Led by StreamGeeks founder Paul Richards, the day will be the first of its kind live streaming educational event. Hear from CEOs and marketing managers, including two representatives from LiveU, a powerhouse company that provides live video streaming for TV, mobile, online and social media. Claudia Barbiero, who oversees the strategic marketing planning and for LiveU will speak about the innovative ways students and influencers are using Facebook Live. Daniel Pisarski, an engineering leader at LiveU, will present on eSports. Pisarski joined the StreamGeeks this year at TwitchCon, and he plans to review the latest eSports trends in live streaming.
Also learn more about LinkedIn Live, as Chris Packard shares his experience in the digital side of the entertainment industry from both production and business development perspectives. Packard is learning the live streaming initiatives at LinkedIn, and his presentation will be a perfect way for students to learn about the professional side of streaming media.
