The Streaming Media West Show Is Coming To LA – Need Speakers, Workshop Instructors

New-SM-West-Logo For those that haven't already heard, the 2010 Streaming Media West show will be in a new city this year, taking place November 1-3 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, CA. This will mark the 13th year for the West Coast show and with the move from San Jose to Los Angeles, we expect the show to be bigger and better than ever.

While the show is not for another six months, I'm already actively working on the advance program and the call for speakers is now open. In addition to speakers, I'm also looking for moderators and potentially one or two workshop instructors. One of the workshops I want to add this year is on HTML 5 video, so if you can present on the topic and have prior training/teaching experience, please contact me ASAP.

I'm looking for all ideas, listening to all proposals and looking to pay
one or two people to help me program some of the show. If you're
interested in getting more involved on this level, please contact me ASAP.

With the move to LA, some might be concerned that the show might now only focus on media and entertainment subjects. But rest assured, we're still going to cover all of the business, technology and content topics we've covered at our previous shows.

With the show now in LA, and with all that goes on in the city, we're also looking to involve and work with as many local video organizations as possible. So if you know of a meetup group or association based around video, content creation etc. we'd love to hear who they are.

In addition, we're pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Streaming Media West show, we're once again having the two-day Online Video Platform Summit that was such a success last year. Hit up the website for more details on speaking and how to send in your speaking proposal.

Each year I go to plan a show, I get tons and tons of calls and emails from companies last minute who want to be involved in the event and are upset when the program is already filled. We do tons of marketing months before the event and a lot of the program has to be planned far in advance for these marketing purposes.

The bottom line is that NOW is the chance for you to have a say and make
an impact on the program. So if you have an idea, want to run something by me, have a question, want to moderate or get paid to help with the West show, the next 4 weeks is the time to contact me. You can send me email or call me anytime at 917-523-4562. I look forward to hearing from you.
