-- Special Track Will Feature New Research from Frank N. Magid Associates

For the first time ever, TVOT is offering--in addition to our full line-up of keynotes, firesides, workshops and panels--a dedicated Insights Track, curated by Frank. N.

The Insights Track will focus on new research that reveals trends, consumer perspectives and emerging best practices from a cross-section of industry leaders. 

Media owners, brands, agencies, broadcasters and tech companies will learn first-hand how their peers are adapting to changing consumer behaviors and the evolving video landscape. Speakers from across the TV ecosystem will  discuss and debate headline-grabbing topics including: 

  • Over-the-Top Direct-to-Consumer TV
  • Advertising Measurement
  • Connected TV's
  • Cross-Platform Media Usage
  • Millennial and Generational Implications
  • Content/Pilot Testing for the Multiscreen Future of TV

We will be announcing more details about the TVOT 2015 Insights Track--which will take place on Day 1 of the show (Tuesday, June 23rd) and which will be offered to attendees at no additional charge--in the [itvt] newsletter shortly.

[itvt] Presents...The TV of Tomorrow Show 2015!

February 9, 2015 - 7:31pm

[itvt] is pleased to announce that the ninth annual TV of Tomorrow Show (TVOT) will take place June 23rd-24th (Tuesday-Wednesday) in a spectacular new location that will not only accommodate the show's continued growth, but provide a wealth of benefits to sponsors, exhibitors and attendees: The Golden Gate Club in San Francisco's Presidio National Park. 

The new location will enable us to offer sponsors and exhibitors a range of new options, including innovative ways to drive awareness of their brand, and the ability to reserve private demo/meeting/hospitality rooms. It will also allow us to offer attendees a uniquely beautiful and memorable indoor-outdoor environment that will facilitate social interaction and enhance the show's signature focus on networking and business development with a number of exciting recreational opportunities.

As previous attendees can attest (see testimonials below), TVOT attracts a veritable "who's who" of the interactive TV, MVPD, advertising and broadcasting/programming industries. The event--which is carefully designed to encourage networking and deal-making--enables the pay-TV operators, consumer electronics manufacturers, social media companies, entrepreneurs and technologists who are building the TV platforms of tomorrow to engage in a productive exchange of ideas with the brands, broadcasters, networks, agencies, marketers, investors, producers/creators, developers, designers, storytellers and other stakeholders upon whom the success of those platforms depends. It has been widely praised for offering a completely unique, inspiring and enjoyable experience, unlike any other tradeshow or conference.
