IIA Events has a very interesting day lined up next week. It’s ideal for businesses and individuals who are looking to use video and audio content in their working lives and for those who are currently using these mediums, but want to develop their expertise in order to maximize their digital footprint.
Audio Video Culture is on the Clarion Hotel IFSC, Dublin, from 1.30pm to 5.15pm on Thursday 22nd April.
There’s a number of great speakers from YouTube, RTE Player, RaboDirect.ie and more, who will be sharing their experiences in the planning, production, distribution, monetisation and measurement of audio and video media and what’s coming in the future. For instance, Fred Caballero of Channelship will be talking about Online Video on a Budget, Peter O’Nell of Mason Hayes+Curran will discuss Digital Content and the law. That’s an area I’d be very interested in hearing more about.
The event is kindly sponsored by Bord Gáis Energy and is part of our ongoing series of events with the IIA Social Media Working Group. It will take a look at some of the possibilities for video and audio content to drive your business online as well as case studies of how it has been done successfully to date.

IIA members should log into the site to avail of the member price.
Have I ever mentioned to you that I love my job here in the IIA? One of the things that I love about it is that I often get to some great events. We recently sponsored IIA Member Company Meetingbooker.com’s Hotel Website Marketing Conference and I would definitely count this as among the best that I attended this year. The speakers were all good and varied but mostly I thought it was very clear that they had done their research about the audience and were aware of the issues and processes effecting the hotel industry’s day to day work.
I live tweeted the event and hope that I shared some of the nuggets. However MeetingsBooker.com have made the slides not only from this conference but their other conferences in 2009 available via Slideshare.
