Evolution of Video Advertising in 2019
Panel session on where we're at today when it comes to LGBTQ video programming, and how advertisers can be a part of it. We'll be touching on OTT (Over The Top) streaming media, as well as SVOD (subscription-based video), AVOD (advertising-based video) and TVOD (transactional video services).



Evolution of Pride Festival Outreach & Marketing
We will be examining how some of the more innovative Pride Festivals are using a blend of social media marketing techniques when promoting their event, to both their local audience, and to those willing to drive or fly in. Events such as LGBTQ film festivals, circuit parties and Pride Festivals are unique in that they market themselves in advance of their event, and then use social media to display event coverage and user-generated content DURING their event as well. We'll take a deeper dive in exploring what has worked best for them, including leveraging Instagram Stories, video on social media and more.
