LeftField Media LLC and Tubefilter Inc. announced today the launch of Stream Con NYC, the first-ever digital content convention in New York City. Founded to engage and connect thousands of fans, creators, brands, platforms and celebrities who are at the forefront of this new era of entertainment, Stream Con NYC will take place from October 30th to November 1st, 2015. This three-day festival will be held at the iconic Jacob K. Javits Center, NYC’s premier event space.
With the vast amount of content creators, global brands, and media conglomerates based in New York City, Stream Con NYC will bridge the gap between fans, creators and today’s top industries. The event will operate on a unique hybrid conference and event formula serving the needs of the advertising, licensing, brands and publishing industries while also celebrating fans and their love for the digital content space and its creators.
“Stream Con NYC is a reflection of rapidly evolving consumer behavior,” said Greg Topalian, President of LeftField Media. “Industries are all grappling with how best to connect with a new audience, and Stream Con NYC is where these worlds converge and where the engagement begins.”
The three-day festival will begin with Stream Con Industry Summit, a full day of panels, networking and discussions designed to help industry leaders better understand and evolve their positioning on the heels of the increasing significance and impact digital influencers have on today’s consumer. Then, fans will be invited for two days of events, industry related programming and direct access to their favorite personalities in the worlds of entertainment, comedy, music, beauty and fashion.
