Welcome to Viewtopia: Vidyard Announces Speakers for 2016 Video Marketing Summit

Vidyard today announced the speaker lineup for Viewtopia 2016, the industry’s largest annual video marketing summit being held in San Francisco Nov. 9-10.

YouTube and Vine personality Zach King headlines an impressive speakers list featuring industry analysts, video experts, marketing innovators and other business leaders. Video continues to be one of the fastest growing and most effective areas of modern digital marketing. Viewtopia attendees will hear from innovative marketing leaders about how video is helping drive results at their companies and will learn practical techniques to launch and advance their own video marketing programs, as well as how to use the power of video in other areas of the business to boost audience engagement and improve results.

“Online video is changing the way businesses connect and communicate with modern buyers,” said Michael Litt, co-founder and CEO of Vidyard. “Viewtopia is where we explore the latest trends in digital content and storytelling, and the expanding role that video is playing throughout the customer lifecycle. It’s a perfect opportunity for marketers, sales leaders and business executives to discover what’s really working and to gain practical advice on how to use video in a more strategic way to deliver real results.”

Zach King started his journey in film at the age of 7 when his parents put him in charge of shooting home videos at a wedding. Since that moment, he’s had the film bug in his blood. As a freshman in film school, he started his YouTube channel where he started posting his film projects, such as Jedi Kittens, which quickly went viral generating millions of views. In September 2013, he opened a Vine account and challenged himself to create one Vine video a day for one month. Three years later, he was awarded the 2016 Shorty Award for Best Vine Artist, and he is now heralded as the king of Vine magic and one of the most popular content creators on social media.
