Attendance At Streaming Media Europe Tops Previous Shows

Thanks to all who attended this year’s Streaming Media Europe last month in London—all 1,015 of you, a 32% increase over 2008’s numbers. I think it’s safe to say that this once again demonstrates just how vibrant the online video industry remains even in the current economy, and the fact that we had visitors from 41 countries means that this has become a truly global event!

We’ve posted all of the session and keynote videos from the show here, but we’ll be rolling some of it out here on the blog over the next few weeks. We’ll kick things off today with the keynote from Myles McBean, VP of Disney Online EMEA. Tim Siglin’s report on the keynote is here, but don’t take his word for it. Check out the video!
