StreamGeek Summit Workshops

Small classroom-sized breakout sessions designed to give attendees hands-on learning experiences with live streaming and video production technology. High-level workshops have been designed to give attendees information about where to get started. More in-depth workshops allow attendees to hone in on specific topics of interest.

Floor Plan

Workshop Areas

Hands-on workshops will feature small classroom environments for groups between 25-30. Each workshop will be recorded, so don’t worry if you can’t make it to every single session. Bring your laptops and smart devices for interactive lessons on video production using today’s latest technology.

Workshops will have limited seating. Space will be filled, “first come, first serve.” As soon as you have purchased a ticket, you will be given access to registration for the available workshops.
