Last year's Video Marketing Summit was a tremendous success and as a result of the overwhelming demand from the attendees we're meeting again this year to take our commitment to video marketing even further. The “Call for Speakers” is now open for the 2014 Reel Video Summit, which will be held July 24-25 at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco. Now, I'd argue that the ReelSummit is the pre-eminent West Coast event where professional video marketers and brands gather to collaborate, learn from, and inspire each other, but then I'm biased. Nevertheless, even unbiased industry observers will tell you that the ReelSummit is where marketers, storytellers, brands and retailers gather to get serious about online video. So, you'll want to check it out for yourself.

For starters, take a look at the awesome promo video created by Bonfire Labs. It’s entitled, “The History of Video Marketing Part 1: Revolution [2014 ReelSummit],” which illustrates that “The History of Video Marketing Part 2: The Evolution” will begin at the ReelSummit.

In a press release that was released today, ReelSEO's Founder, Mark Robertson said,

“Speakers from leading service providers, brands and digital marketing agencies are lining up to participate in the Summit, but most importantly, we look forward to adding some savvy video marketers who didn’t speak at last year’s premiere event join us this year!”

He added,

“For 2014, we’re expanding to a two-day summit, which will feature insights from the foremost influencers in video marketing, video advertising, and video analytics/results. If you are an expert video marketer and are interested in being considered for a speaking opportunity, please fill out the form on the Video Summit Speaking Opportunities page by this Sunday, May 18th!”

It goes without saying that this is very short notice, but we're looking for a few select speakers who can discuss and present examples as well as data from actual video marketing campaigns for large businesses and brands. Preference will be given to those with direct, first-hand knowledge and experience with video content creation, marketing or advertising for a large business or brand.

So, do you have an idea for a panel session, or presentation? If you'd like to be considered as a speaker or have a session idea, please fill in the form on the speaker’s page. Speakers who are accepted will receive a full, complimentary registration to the main summit (training workshops excluded), a $1,295 value, plus prime exposure amongst peers in the industry.
