[itvt] is pleased to announce that the seventh annual TV of Tomorrow Show (TVOT) will take place June 25th-26th (Tuesday-Wednesday) at San Francisco's famous Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), where we have secured additional space this year to keep pace with the event's recent rapid growth.
The TV of Tomorrow Show has been widely praised not only as a true experts' conference that attracts a veritable "who's who" of the interactive TV industry, but as offering a completely unique and enjoyable experience, and as presenting unparalleled opportunities for developing new business.
The event--which is expressly designed to encourage networking, relationship-building, and deal-making--enables the pay-TV operators, consumer electronics manufacturers and technologists who are building the TV platforms of tomorrow to engage in an interactive and productive exchange of ideas with the brands, broadcasters, networks, agencies, entrepreneurs, investors, producers, developers, designers, storytellers, social media companies and other stakeholders upon whom the success of those platforms depends.

[itvt] has already confirmed an initial line-up of speakers, panelists and workshop leaders for TVOT 2013, but we are still very open to your suggestions for topics you would like to see covered on the event's schedule, and for speakers you would like to see participate in the event. Uniquely among tradeshows, the TV of Tomorrow Show features an agenda that is developed through ongoing dialog with the industry. Please contact Tracy Swedlow, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-824-5806, to discuss your proposal. Please note that [itvt] is not a pay-for-play organization and that speakers do not have to pay any fee to participate in our TVOT events.
The TV of Tomorrow Show offers several different sponsorship levels, each designed to ensure maximum marketing exposure for your company--at the event itself, in the [itvt] newsletter and on our Web site, and in our talk radio show. Sponsors also have the option of booking a room for private meetings, customer hospitality and demos; or of securing a brand presence on our new in-show TV network. If you would like to find out more about sponsoring the event, email us at email@example.com or call 415-824-5806.
TVOT 2013's exhibit floor is located in an area that is highly trafficked by the event's attendees. However, exhibit space is limited and we are assigning it on a first-come-first-served basis. So to guarantee that your company will have a booth at the show, please contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-824-5806.
THE 10TH ANNUAL AWARDS FOR LEADERSHIP IN INTERACTIVE AND MULTIPLATFORM TELEVISION
[itvt] will present our prestigious annual Awards for Leadership in Interactive and Multiplatform Television at a ceremony at the TV of Tomorrow Show 2012. The awards, which debuted at the NCTA National Show in 2004, recognize both corporate and individual achievement in the multiplatform interactive TV space. We will begin accepting nominations for the awards shortly: the winners will be determined by [itvt] readers and a panel of industry experts through a rigorous voting process.
ISSUES IN FOCUS
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 2013 include:
