OTT Executive Summit Overview
T hank you for your interest in the 6th annual OTT (Over the Top Video) Executive Summit, being held June 5th, 2018 at the Marriott Marquis in New York City's Times Square. The OTT Executive Summit brings together the top minds in video content, distribution, and technology to discuss how OTT is enabling new business models for both traditional Pay TV providers and new innovators, and the challenges to making that vision possible. We are planning another fantastic gathering of industry executives representing the “who’s who” of the industry— including service providers, broadcasters, programmers, content producers, advertisers, and enabling technologies. More than 90% of past attendees were CXOs or VPs and all were key thought leaders and decision makers.
The OTT Executive Summit is like no other conference you have attended. The format guarantees a highly strategic, educational, and even fun experience. The conference mingles industry executives and experts with a “Trender Panel”— a focus group of normal, everyday people representing various demographics. In addition to discussions of key industry topics, the OTT Executive Summit is gamified, with the winner being awarded the "OTT Genius” trophy. In addition, “Best of Show” and other trophies are awarded based on ballots cast by the audience during the Product Speedcase, in which sponsors conduct demos or presentations for attendees. This conference is sure to be a thought-provoking and fun way to exchange ideas.
The Summit has been hailed by FierceOnlineVideo as an innovative event "that had the perfect size and format for the topics being discussed, and was very insightful". A senior executive from Verizon called it an "excellent chance to share ideas and insights with an extremely bright, gregarious group... a truly worthwhile, enjoyable, experience. Great job putting this together!" Last year’s OTT Executive Summit drew over 200 experts and executives to the media hub of the world for highly informed and interactive discussions. Feedback for last year’s Summit was very positive. In fact, 94% of past attendees rated the Summit 8 “exceeded expectations”, 9 “loved it”, or 10 “amazing!”
There is limited space available so please sign up soon to take advantage of the great content and networking during the day. Please direct any questions to OTT Executive Summit President Brian Mahony: bmahony@OTTexec.com.

O ne of the innovations that makes the OTT Executive Summit unique is the use of gamification to keep the dialogue interactive and fun. How often have we been to conferences where someone stands at a podium and drones on and on, making sure to include every possible buzzword and bit of technical jargon in the presentation. Not here. Though we will have expert speakers and industry executives dispensing wisdom, we'll "keep them honest" by awarding points for good presentations, comments, or predicting how the expert or Trender panels may respond to key questions posed to them. And we'll do it in real-time during the conference. The winner will be awarded the "OTT Genius" trophy at the end of the day. Just a small token of the audience's appreciation for being interesting and insightful.
To do this, each attendee must remember to bring a smart phone, tablet, or laptop to the event. We'll make sure you get a good WiFi connection or you can use your mobile service provider.
