EVENTS THAT WILL BE COMING BACK IN THE FUTURE:

Dec 9-10, 2020 - TVOT - TV of Tomorrow Show | San Francisco, CA

Over the past few years TVOT and TVOT NYC have become the leading venues for agencies, brands, broadcasters, content-owners and adtech companies to explore the complex interrelationships between audience measurement, big data, and advanced advertising. The shows also provide multiple opportunities for TV and video professionals to examine the potential of significant new technologies, such as ATSC 3.0/Next-Gen TV, 5G, autonomous vehicles, Blockchain, artificial intelligence/machine learning, voice assistants, VR/AR, and more. Additionally, the shows have become one of the very few places where established TV players can meet and network with the creative and business communities that have emerged on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitch, TikTok and other social-video platforms to address the rapidly evolving viewing habits and programming preferences of Millennials and Gen Z.
