FORA.tv, the leading provider of video production, online distribution, and monetization services for the conference and event industry, today announced its participation as a host company in next week’s NewCo San Francisco 2014. FORA.tv will open its doors to the public on Sept 12th at 12 pm PT for a presentation by CEO Blaise Zerega, “Live Streaming Video on Twitter.” Online audiences can join the presentation on Twitter @FORAtvServices or on the web at newco.fora.tv.
Zerega’s presentation will be broadcast live on @FORAtvServices and will provide a real time demonstration of live video distribution on Twitter: Live video is one of the most powerful ways to reach new audiences for conferences, sporting events and news. With Twitter’s increased emphasis on video, live video tweets — as well as those that playback on-demand — can exponentially multiply viewership. We’ll show you techniques and case studies to deepen branding, increase engagement and achieve rapid-fire distribution for online video.
NewCo San Francisco 2014 is a fresh twist on the traditional conference and media platform, taking place inside the world’s most innovative startups and high-growth companies to provide a deep and unique experience of the innovation economy. As a host company for the second consecutive year, FORA.tv joins a select group of innovative organizations for this ground-breaking event.
“We are thrilled to present as a host company during this year’s NewCo festival,” said FORA.tv CEO Blaise Zerega. “Like NewCo, we value and foster an environment of open collaboration, communication and community. We look forward to showing attendees how to use live video on Twitter.”

A fresh twist on the traditional conference + media platform, NewCo is rapidly gaining traction across the globe. The concept is simple but powerful: NewCo turns a traditional event inside out. Instead of filling a dark ballroom with “attendees” and having leaders lecture in a one-to-many style, NewCo occurs inside the world’s most innovative startups and high-growth companies. Executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and future influencers get an up close and personal experience of each company in its native habitat. Once inside, participants have a wide range of experiences – from behind-the-scene tours of cutting-edge work environments to founders candidly sharing insights into their own entrepreneurial journey. Only NewCo offers this deep and unique experience of the innovation economy.
