TVOT NYC 2014: TV Everywhere 5 Years On

[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.
