“In a single action-packed day, we heard ‘the pitch’ from the CEO of virtually every leading start-up venture in the ‘social TV’ space, as well as getting the perspective from senior executives of all major stakeholders including portals, major social media services, studios and networks. If you are trying to understand how your business might be a beneficiary or casualty of the disruption caused by the nascent socialTV phenomenon, you won’t find a better use of your time.”

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing from and learning about all of the new and emerging companies… was especially impressed with Snappy tv, tvtak, Shaazam, shopkick, and Bluefin labs. I have already met with most of them and have introduced them to several folks inside MTV Networks… exciting, game changing companies. See you in November at the next one!”
