Video For Business Conference 2015

We’re excited to announce the Video For Business Conference. This single-day event will give business owners and marketing professionals information about using video to power up their businesses.

We have a number of great speakers who’ll be presenting throughout the day. These folks are experts in their fields, and include marketing and PR firm Carswell Gould, creative agency Idealogy and aerial video specialists Highline Aerial Media. We’ll also presentations from members of our team at Southpoint Films.

Want to join us? You can attend in-person at the Ocean Village Innovation Centre in Southampton on October 20th 2015. Or you can watch the event online in realtime. The conference will also be broadcast online through Southpoint Live, our new live streaming service.

Why Are We Hosting A Conference?

Recently, we noticed a real lack of events focussed on corporate video. In fact, we couldn’t find any events about using video for business as part of a digital marketing strategy.

While there are hundreds of events every day for general business topics, such as marketing, as well as events about video production, there appears to be nothing out there specifically addressing how video production can impact a business.

In an effort to change this, we’re hosting this one-day event. We hope to give you a taste of how different businesses use video and what can be achieved with it. With a handful of presentations from guest speakers, live demonstrations and, importantly, free breakfast – I mean, networking opportunities throughout the day, we hope to provide attendees interested in video, marketing and business with a great deal of value.

Who is this conference for?

This conference is designed for businesses, charities and other organisations that want to explore how video can be used effectively for them. Our speakers are experts in their fields and will be discussing how video can fit into your marketing strategy. We’ll also share how video can be used to improve aspects of your business such as training. And we’ll also show how live streaming can help you increase the reach of your own business events and conferences.

Whether your business has used video before or is simply thinking about using video at some point in the future, we hope that this event will provide you with value.

We should emphasise that this is not a trade event for video companies to get together and talk about cameras. Nor is it an event where we’ll sit you down with a camera and teach you how to make a film. Our intention is to introduce you to creative professionals who can offer you advice or work with you to overcome your business and marketing challenges.
