This year's Digital Video Expo includes three new conference tracks, the integration of Broadcast Symposium West, and Apple certification, including Final Cut Pro 7 instruction from authors and master trainers Diana Weynand and Michael Wohl, plus immersion courses for everyone from beginners to advanced users. Also new this year is a special track focusing on career management and development.
"We're excited to present programming that addresses today's incredibly competitive marketplace for our growing family of attendees," says David Williams, Conference Chair, Digital Video Expo, and Editor, DV Magazine. "Not only will we have a great show floor featuring all the latest technology for production and post, but Digital Video Expo takes the next step by also offering insight on how to actually build your career. To quote one of our keynote speakers, veteran entertainment industry career coach Jessica Sitomer, ‘Sometimes talent isn't enough.' Well, technology alone often isn't enough either. Today's creative content professional needs to have not only talent and a firm grasp on technology, but the ability to bring those attributes to the marketplace. And Digital Video Expo is the only show that addresses all three of those elements necessary for your success."
The changes being made by Digital Video Expo have already resonated with the content creation community, as attendee registration is up more than 40 percent to date over last year's event.
"We're gratified by our increased registration, as it confirms our belief that this year's Digital Video Expo programming and message is the right response to today's challenging business realities," says Carmel King, NewBay Executive Vice President. "In addition, our move to the Pasadena Convention Center will offer our attendees a centralized, engaging, and lively destination, featuring a world-class, pedestrian-friendly entertainment district with over 500 restaurants, bars, theaters, and an array of hotel options. Pasadena also has a rich TV and film production industry history, and will make for a safe, convenient, freeway-close, and comfortable destination."
