Mediasite Events Partners with PCMA to Connect Business Events Organizers Worldwide in 2020

Mediasite Events to capture PCMA educational conferences, including flagship Convening Leaders 2020 this week

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — PCMA Convening Leaders 2020 Innovate + Elevate Arena — January 06, 2020 — Mediasite Events, which helps organizations create dynamic online event experiences, will capture PCMA’s largest conference, Convening Leaders 2020, this week in San Francisco, Calif. This is the first in a string of conferences Mediasite Events will capture live and on-demand this year as part of its long-standing partnership with PCMA.

PCMA represents more than 7,000 business events organizers and suppliers from 17 chapters around the world and holds several professional development conferences annually. Mediasite Events will once again be the exclusive conference streaming provider for the year, helping thousands of global business events professionals network and share knowledge more efficiently and attend online regardless of distance.

“Livestream events are an important part of our Convening Leaders experience by allowing remote participants the ability to engage and experience some of the innovation, excitement and insights of our signature event,” said Sherrif Karamat, CAE, PCMA’s president and CEO. “Our decade-long relationship with Mediasite Events allows us to bring Convening Leaders to a broader audience unable to join us in person.”

Almost 4,500 business events professionals will attend Convening Leaders in San Francisco, Calif. Mediasite Events will stream keynotes, select sessions and interviews with thought leaders as part of PCMA Convening Leaders LIVE Jan. 5 to 8 for those who can’t attend in-person. The public can register for the online event for free at PCMA will also rebroadcast some of the sessions shortly after for those who missed the stream, which is made possible by a quick video turnaround from Mediasite Events.

Mediasite Events will also capture PCMA’s Spring Meetings for its partners and board members in Puerto Rico this spring and EduCon 2020 this summer in Montreal, Quebec.

“In today’s fast-paced, tech-driven world, event participants simply expect an online component with sessions streamed live and available on-demand for review. PCMA understood this very early on and continues to lead the way in the industry by working with our Mediasite Events team to create the most impactful and valuable hybrid experiences,” said Michael Norregaard, CEO, Sonic Foundry, the maker of Mediasite. “The most influential people in the meetings industry attend PCMA conferences, and we’re thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with PCMA to help connect event professionals from around the world with streaming video.”
