For our first-even European quarterly meeting, Sky will be hosting the Streaming Video Alliance in their new state-of-the-art headquarters in Osterly, U.K., just outside of London.
“This is an important milestone for the Alliance,” says Jason Thibeault, Executive Director. “We consider ourselves a global organization. Given that we have members from Australia, the U.K., Sweden, and Italy it only made sense for us to host one of our quarterly face-to-face meetings in a more central location, especially right before such a major industry show as IBC. Based on a successful event, we hope to continue this trend of hosting meetings that meet the needs of our global membership.”
The Streaming Video Alliance meeting will be held in conjunction with Sky’s invite-only event, “Streaming at Scale.” As detailed in the schedule below, there will be ample opportunity for Alliance members and Sky guests to mingle and network.
