Our annual Spring/Summer West Coast conference in San Francisco is the global gathering for executives, technologists and creatives working in the Interactive and Multiplatform Television industry/community. The two day conference is also the venue for the presentation of the highly regarded Awards for Leadership in Interactive and Multiplatform Television, presented by [itvt] since 2004.
Our annual Fall/Winter East Coast conference in New York City is called TVOT NYC Intensive. This event packs the TV of Tomorrow Show experience into a one-day, three-track 'Intensive.'"

A Different Kind of Event...
While [itvt]'s TV of Tomorrow Show events feature an exhibit hall and panel sessions, that's where their similarity to other industry conferences and tradeshows ends:
- They are the only industry events to focus exclusively on the delivery, user experience and business of interactive TV across multiple platforms (e.g. pay-TV, connected TV/OTT, tablets, smartphones and other second-screen devices, IPTV, Web, social networks, VOD, game consoles, augmented reality systems, etc.)
- Ensuring that attendees are able to meet and schmooze with the right people is a primary focus of the events. One of our principal goals is to introduce to one another people and companies with complementary visions.
- The events are not "pay-for-play": speakers are selected for their expertise alone, not because they, or the company they represent, have paid a speaker's fee.
- The panel sessions are structured, educational, rigorous and highly focused, and even include moderated (and sometimes heated) debates on hot-button issues.
- The panel sessions are developed through an ongoing dialog with the readership of the [itvt] newsletter, allowing us to ensure that they accurately reflect the interests and concerns of the industry.
- The events are highly interactive, with open floor/mic sessions and other features designed to promote discussion. They also offer in-depth workshop sessions, where smaller groups of participants have the opportunity to dialog with leading industry experts and explore new technologies, platforms and media in a more focused and hands-on way.
- The events feature innovative staging, designed to facilitate debate and communication between panelists and interaction with attendees.
- The events are designed to promote cross-pollination between the interactive/multiplatform TV community and other creative communities, such as artists, designers, interactive storytellers, independent filmmakers, and more.
- Finally, the events are designed to be fun. They feature entertainments, challenges, contests, and a range of other social activities.
