Live streaming is now the fastest, most authentic way to reach an audience.
The business implications of live streaming are wide in range and global in scale, as the likes of Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, Mixer, Twitter, and LinkedIn all offer it on their platforms.
West Chester is home to a groundbreaking group of video production experts who are dedicated to helping businesses discover the power of live streaming. The StreamGeeks are comprised of co-hosts Paul Richards and Tess Protesto and producer Michael Luttermoser. They have an impressive following and a tight-knit online community that they serve through consultations and live shows that continue to inspire, motivate, and inform business owners who refuse to settle for mediocrity.
In keeping with its mission to help others achieve their live-streaming goals, the StreamGeeks will host the StreamGeeks Summit on Friday, Nov. 8 from 8 AM-5 PM at the Dream Downtown in New York City. The conference will be the first ever held on the East Coast that is dedicated to educating amateurs and professionals who want to broaden their industry knowledge of video production and live streaming.
“We will have CEOs and executives from the country’s top live-streaming companies with us to share their industry expertise,” said Richards.
The StreamGeeks Summit will feature panel sessions with industry leaders, including breakout classrooms for in-depth workshops. The event is meant to provide a day of collaboration and the opportunity for attendees to mingle with the industry’s top live streamers. For anyone interested in live streaming, this is an event they won’t want to miss.
Geoffrey Colon, the Head of Brand Studio at Microsoft Advertising and the author of Disruptive Marketing, will be the keynote speaker. He will highlight the power of live streaming and its influence on brand strategy, podcasting, the gaming industry, live music industry, and sports.
