New York, NY—Live streaming of interviews and activities from the PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo begin October 25 and continue through October 27, from the Javits Convention Center in New York City. The Nielsen Photo Group partnered with photography website FroKnowsPhoto.com and Internet broadcasting site GeekBeat.TV to produce the broadcasts.
John P., cohost of the online technology show GeekBeat Live, and Jared Polin, founder of FroKnowsPhoto.com, will host PhotoPlus Live, which can be seen on GeekBeat TV.
PhotoPlus Live will provide professional photographers and photo enthusiasts around the world with a sense of what’s going on at the PhotoPlus Expo through interviews with exhibitors, seminar speakers and world-class photographers, all from its broadcast booth (#181) located on the show floor.
In addition, reporters will walk the aisles and visit seminar presentations to expand the PhotoPlus Expo experience to an audience beyond the estimated 27,000 attendees.
“We realize that not everyone can be in New York for PhotoPlus Expo so we wanted to create a live broadcast of the show for those folks,” explained Jeff McQuilkin, director, PDN PhotoPlus International Conference & Expo. “John P. from GeekBeat and Jared Polin from FroKnowsPhoto will conduct live interviews with exhibitors and seminar presenters and also visit other areas of the show to give viewers a great feel for all the activity and energy at the show. Following the show, all interviews and segments from the show will be archived for anyone to enjoy, including those actually attending the show.”
“We are very excited about broadcasting live from PhotoPlus Expo this year,” added John P., who is also chief executive of Livid Lobster, producers of GeekBeat.TV. “This is an incredible way for anyone who can’t make the show to learn about all the new technologies and hear from some of the world’s best creative pros, as it actually happens. We are looking forward to sharing our experiences with our viewing audience.”
