Call For Speakers Now Open For Streaming Media East: Moderators Wanted

Smeast_logo The call for speakers for the 2010 Streaming Media East show, taking place May 11-12 at the Hilton hotel in NYC is now open. And I’m excited to announce that once again I’ll be organizing the Content Delivery Summit, taking place the day before the East show on Monday May 10th. I’ll have more details about the summit shortly.

In the mean time, the call for speakers is now open. The deadline is January 25th. I have roughly 110 speaking spots and typically get over 800 speaking requests. Everyone always wants a speaking spot but I simply don’t have enough to go around. The key is to get a submission in on-time and for vendors, introduce us to customers. 75% of the speaking spots go to content owners and end-users, the companies who buy and use online video services. I always need introductions to new customers.

In addition, I always need moderators who can help organize panels. So if you wanted to moderate a session at the show, organize a discussion around a topic of interest to you or get involved in helping to create the programming of a session, now is the time to contact me. For me, the hardest part is always finding moderators that are neutral and understand the importance moderators play in helping us produce quality programming.

If you have experience moderating and are looking to help out and get involved, you need to contact me ASAP. I’m also looking to pay some moderators who are willing to help out with more than one session.
