Streaming Media East 2009 and Content Delivery Summit are One Week Away, May 11-13th

With only a week away the Content Delivery Summit kicks off in New York City on Monday, May 11th followed by the Streaming Media East 2009 Conference & Exhibition on May 12-13th. The Summit, a new event of Streaming Media East, will feature 50 speakers discussing a dozen different facets of the content delivery business.

I spoke with Dan Rayburn, EVP, and Conference Chairman months ago about the Summit and he said, "So my whole goal is to bring the industry together so that we have Wall Street, customers and vendors all talking to one another." This is the first time has done a one-day, no exhibition event really focusing on high level networking.

The full program can be viewed here and keynotes will be by Jeffrey Cohen, GM, Edge Computing Network, Microsoft and Reza Hajebi, Infrastructure Strategy and Planning, Yahoo!

Streaming Media East Pre-conference seimars also start on May 11th followed by the two-day conference on May 12-13th. With the explosion of online video over the past two years, Streaming Media East is the number-one place to come see, learn, and discuss what is taking place with all forms of online video business models and technology. There's still time to register and you can get all the information about the conference program, list of speakers, exhibitors, hotel and travel here. As previous Streaming Media conferences, all sessions will be recorded and available at:

On his blog Dan added that, "While many conferences only allow attendees to hear opening keynotes from those who have paid to attend the conference, keynotes at the Streaming Media East and West shows have always been open to anyone at no charge as long as they register for a free exhibit pass."
