InteractiveTV Today [itvt] is pleased to announce that the 11th Annual TV of Tomorrow Show (TVOT) will take place June 28th-29th (Wednesday-Thursday) at The Golden Gate Club in San Francisco's famous Presidio National Park--a truly stunning location overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island and the San Francisco Bay.
While just 15 minutes from downtown San Francisco, the show's location allows us to offer attendees a uniquely beautiful and memorable indoor-outdoor environment which facilitates social interaction and community-building, and which also complements TVOT's signature focus on networking and business development with a plethora of recreational opportunities.
Once again, we will be offering sponsors and exhibitors a range of exciting options, including innovative and effective ways to drive awareness of their brand, and the ability to reserve private demo/meeting/hospitality rooms.
As previous attendees can attest (see testimonials below), TVOT consistently attracts a veritable "who's who" of the interactive/advanced-TV, pay-TV, OTT-TV, advertising, broadcasting/programming, data/measurement, consumer-electronics and live-streaming/social-video industries. The show--which is carefully designed to encourage networking and deal-making--has been widely praised for offering a uniquely inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable experience, unlike any other tradeshow or conference. Moreover, over the past few years, TVOT has become the event of choice for established TV players to meet and network with the creative and business communities that have emerged on YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Periscope and other social-video platforms in response to the rapidly evolving viewing habits and programming preferences of Millennials and Gen Z. It has also become one of the leading venues for agencies, brands, broadcasters, content-owners and adtech companies to explore the relationship between audience measurement, big data, and advanced advertising.
Date and Place: June 28-29th (Wednesday-Thursday) in San Francisco

While [itvt]'s TV of Tomorrow Show events feature an exhibit hall and panel sessions, that's where their similarity to other industry conferences and tradeshows ends:
- They are the only industry events to focus on the production, delivery, user experience and business of interactive and advanced TV across multiple platforms, media and technologies (e.g. pay TV, smart TV, tablets, smartphones, OTT, social networks, VOD, game consoles, programming, advertising, tcommerce, AR/VR, IoT, in-car, artificial intelligence, etc.)
- Ensuring that attendees are able to meet and schmooze with the right people is a primary focus of the events. One of our principal goals is to introduce to one another people and companies with complementary visions and solutions.
- The events are not "pay-for-play": speakers are selected for their expertise alone, not because they, or the company they represent, have paid a speaker's fee.
- The events' panel sessions are developed through an ongoing dialog with the readership of the [itvt] newsletter, allowing us to ensure that they are topical, timely and accurately reflect the interests and concerns of the industry.
- The panel sessions are highly interactive, with debates, open mics, polls and other features designed to promote discussion.
- The events also offer in-depth Workshop/Master Class sessions, where smaller groups of participants have the opportunity to dialog with leading industry experts and explore new technologies, platforms and media in a more focused and hands-on way.
- The events feature innovative staging, designed to facilitate debate and communication between panelists and interaction with attendees.
- The events are designed to promote cross-pollination between the interactive/multiplatform TV community and other creative communities, such as social-video creators/influencers, artists, performers, designers, interactive storytellers, independent filmmakers, and more.
- Finally, the events are designed to be fun. They feature entertainments, challenges, contests, and a range of other social activities.
Sessions at the TV of Tomorrow Show 2017 will be broadly organized into three tracks, featuring close to 200 industry-expert speakers and panelists:
- A Today Track will focus on the hard data that can be gleaned--and the lessons that can be learned--from the many deployments of advanced TV and video that are already in the field today. Representatives from the operators, technology providers, device manufacturers, broadcasters, networks, production companies, advertising agencies, brands, measurement/analytics companies, OTT programmers, social media platforms, MCN's, UI/UX designers, application developers and other players that are currently implementing interactive and multiplatform television in the US and beyond will present examples of their work, and provide attendees with new deployment statistics, reports from the field, best practices and other insider insights.
- A Tomorrow Track will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore how the various platforms, technologies, screens, standards, content genres and business models that make up today's advanced-TV/video space are likely to evolve over the coming months and years, and to identify new platforms, new technologies, new forms of programming, new kinds of data, new monetization strategies, and other developments that are likely to impact the space in the future. Highly interactive, dialog-driven sessions will enable attendees not only to hear from the companies, organizations and people that are shaping the future of interactive/multiplatform/social/advanced TV, but to question those experts and provide them with feedback on their efforts.
- A Workshop/Master Class Track will provide attendees with a more intimate and hands-on environment in which to: 1) see and learn about promising new advanced-TV technologies, standards and business strategies; 2) get their questions and concerns answered by subject matter experts; and 3) gain practical skills for implementing new TV experiences.
In addition to these three tracks, the event will feature:
- Vendor booths and private demo/meeting/hospitality rooms.
- A vibrant cocktail party where attendees will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with many of the most influential figures shaping tomorrow's television.
- Gourmet catering.
- The presentation of the 14th Annual Awards for Leadership in Interactive and Multiplatform Television.
- Art installations, performances and more.
- The chance to enjoy the many recreational opportunities (beaches, hiking and cycling trails, internationally acclaimed restaurants, world-class golf courses, and more) offered by the Presidio National Park, San Francisco itself, and nearby Marin County.

The [itvt] editorial team develops the agenda for our TV of Tomorrow Show events through an extensive dialoguing process with the readership of the [itvt] newsletter (which includes many key industry players), in order to ensure that each show covers all the issues that are currently of most pressing importance to the industry. As a result, we typically announce the agenda just a few weeks before each show. However, some of the issues that we expect to explore at TVOT SF 2017 include:
- Reports from the field: How recent deployments of virtual MVPD/"skinny-bundle" services, niche, direct-to-consumer OTT SVOD offerings, interactive programming and advertising, live social broadcasting, dynamic and addressable advertising, tcommerce, programmatic TV, social TV, programming-discovery technology, measurement and analytics services, social-video storytelling and marketing, virtual/augmented reality experiences, TV Everywhere, and other advanced-TV/video innovations are faring in the real world; and what the success or otherwise of these deployments tells us about the business models for the TV of tomorrow. Which advanced-TV platforms, services and content offerings are attracting audiences and generating revenues today and how?
- The ongoing challenges involved in accurately measuring and understanding TV viewership on non-traditional platforms; and how advertising and audience measurement are being reinvented in order to take into account the growth of cross-platform viewing, time- and place-shifting, second-screening, and other ongoing changes in viewer behavior.
- The increasingly important role "Big Data" is playing in the television and advertising industries: the new forms of data that are being generated by interactive, connected and social TV, and how brands and agencies can take advantage of these data to make their campaigns more targeted, more accountable and thus more effective.
- The emerging relationship between big data and creative--both in the programming and advertising spaces.
