We are getting very close to kicking off our first ever global customer conference, Brightcove PLAY, on May 23rd in Boston, and we are so excited to finally bring together more than 400 of our customers and partners for this great event! This sold out event will bring together the best and brightest in the online video industry for three action-packed days of networking, next gen product demos, best practice sharing and exciting keynote presentations.
As part of the event, we will have a special presentation during the keynote session on May 25th for the Brightcove Online Video Innovation awards. These awards recognize some of the most innovative, cutting edge online video initiatives and campaigns across a number of industries and use cases. We are amazed each day with how our customers use our platform to create dynamic, engaging online video experiences, and these awards give us the chance to showcase a small group of customers that are leading the way.
