Unleash is just two months away, and we’ve got another action-packed, education-filled user conference planned for you this year. Unleash is your best opportunity to explore, learn, connect and play with other Mediasite enthusiasts, newbies and experts. If it’s been a few years since you’ve attended, we encourage you to come back to Madison, Wis. to see what’s new and take advantage of all the great learning opportunities.
I can’t believe there are only two months left before Unleash 2013! It seems like we were just wrapping up last year’s Mediasite User Conference, but our seventh annual program is just around the corner. This year will be our biggest one yet with hundreds from all over the world in attendance here in Madison, Wis.
The countdown is on to the seventh annual Mediasite User Conference, taking place April 28 – May 1 in Madison, Wisconsin. What separates this gathering from the rest is its aversion to cookie-cutter conferencing. Whether you’re an UNLEASH veteran or this is your first year, here are a few things you should know about what’s coming in 2013.
Sure, making any sort of financial decision can be tricky, but determining which hybrid event services to use might be trickier than you thought.
From the stage to the screen there are several vendors you need to choose, such as your streaming provider, the platform you use and the production services. As a planner you get quotes from several vendors and they may not seem like they’re apples to apples.
For the last two months we’ve shared with you the top lessons from The Meeting Professionals International Foundation’s research on hybrid meetings – events that offer a mix of face-to-face and virtual experiences simultaneously.
If you take away just one thing from the recent study on hybrid events from Sonic Foundry and Meeting Professionals International Foundation, make it this:
While 50% of planners surveyed said cannibalization is a top concern in their organization, 88% of planners who have done hybrid meetings say there’s been NO negative impact on onsite attendance. In fact, many say it even boosts onsite attendance. That’s HUGE!
“Content is what gets people through the door, engagement is what keeps them there and makes them come back for more.”
Those are wise words from Emilie Barta, hybrid event consultant and virtual event host, who was surveyed in a new hybrid research project, released this week by Meeting Professionals International Foundation and sponsored by Mediasite Events by Sonic Foundry.
If you're a fan of Lock Haven University (LHU) athletics you don't have to live in Pennsylvania to watch sporting events.
The university uses Mediasite to broadcast its sports coverage to parents, fans, boosters, and alumni across the globe, to places like Australia, England, and Trinidad and Tobago.
