We’re hosting our annual Mediasite User Group Europe Forum 28 January, and we’re so excited to see all of our European friends again.

Last year over 50 webcasting and lecture capture professionals from nine countries met face-to-face to network and hear success stories and strategies from several prominent institutions, including the European Space Agency and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

This year will be even bigger. Over 100 Mediasite users are expected to attend the event from the Netherlands, Norway, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Turkey, Germany, Austria and Ireland. With our jam-packed itinerary full of speakers and networking sessions we’re confident our attendees will leave feeling energized to take their video programs at home to the next step.

Attendees will:

  • Learn best practices and see implementation examples from peers to maximize their Mediasite deployments
  • Hear about the latest Mediasite developments from Sonic Foundry 
  • Share strategies for successfully expanding or upgrading Mediasite in their organizations
  • Get new ideas for unique and practical applications of Mediasite
  • Learn tips and tricks that can be applied to daily Mediasite operations
  • Share their Mediasite feedback with Sonic Foundry leadership
  • Develop their Mediasite professional network

Check out our line-up below, and register today (it's free!).  Hurry, registration closes 18 January. We hope to see you there!
