Call For Speakers Now Open For 2012 Streaming Media East Show In NYC

The call for speakers for the 2012 Streaming Media East show, taking place May 15-16 at the Hilton Hotel in NYC is now open. The submission deadline is Monday, January 20th, 2012 but I typically receive more than 800 submissions and only have room for about 120 speaking slots. So I would suggest you don't wait till the last minute as many speaking spots go very fast.

If you are interested in moderating your own round-table session at the show and are looking to help organize and participate in the topic and creation of a session, please contact me immediately with your idea. I am also looking for more presenters who can do stand-alone how to sessions and am looking for proposals for some 3-hour workshops on topics pertaining to HTML5 video.

Also, I know that many vendors want to speak at the show and sometimes feel frustrated that they don't get picked. The way I choose which vendors get the speaking spots at our East and West shows is based on those vendors that bring customers to speak at the show. So when you submit your speaking request, please make sure you fill out the entire form where it asks about potential customers that may be able to speak at the show. More details on this selection process can be found here and if you have any questions, please pick up the phone and call me. I prefer to talk about proposals much more over the phone than via email and am always reachable at 917-523-4562.

In conjunction with the 2012 East show we will also have the Content Delivery Summit taking place on Monday May 14th, with the call for speakers opening next week. In addition, the Streaming Media East show will once again feature the special Broadband Device Pavilion and will be expanded this year to include tablets. It is still the only place that I know of where you can come get hands on with over 25 different devices as well as nearly three dozen different content platforms.

There is a lot going on for our 2012 shows, so I am starting the planning much earlier this year. If you have an idea, want to run something by me, want to propose or pitch me on anything, please pick up the phone and give me a call. I'd be glad to talk to you.
