Despite the ongoing pandemic and lockdowns, this virtual gathering will offer an unmatched opportunity to interact with fellow attendees, speakers, and experts.

“This event was one of the most successful virtual shows I went to last year,” said industry strategist and consultant Albert Lewitinn, an industry veteran and long-time TVOT participant. “The reason it worked so well was the social aspect. No other show could replicate the feeling of networking with your peers at a live event brimming with energy, but the TVOT team is always looking for opportunities to connect people. I have seen how many of the connections made at TVOT turn into very successful business ventures. A virtual event just means more of our colleagues from far and wide can share in the full TVOT experience and meet a wider range of world-class colleagues.”

TVOT Live connects groups from all over the world. As Tracy Swedlow, Co-Producer of The TV of Tomorrow Show puts it, “Our goal is always to put on a show that introduces the amazing community we’ve built to new voices, and now we can include voices from all around the globe. In 2021, we want to emphasize networking, business development and social interaction to allow our global community to center around an interactive TV experience.”
