Voxnest Presents Live Stage at Podcast Movement 2019

Podcast Movement, the biggest podcasting gathering of the year, is less than two weeks away in sunny Orlando, Florida. While our team is, as always, looking forward to learning from and connecting with folks in the industry, we’re extra excited about this year’s Live Stage! 

With the growing interest in live streaming in the podcast space, we wanted to partner with Podcast Movement as it takes the next logical step: adding live streaming to the Live Stage at PM19. We are thrilled to sponsor this element of Podcast Movement that will live stream sessions to folks around the world

We’ve been working hard to bring attendees a line-up of inspiring and interesting speakers and topics, and we’re confident that we’ve done just that. From giving attendees the chance to pitch their podcast idea and get (gentle) feedback from talented podcast producers to exploring if the industry’s growth and monetization is affecting what listeners hear, there’s sure to be a plethora of stimulating conversations happening on Live Stage.

Be sure to join us for one of the sessions below and stop by Booth #422 in the exhibition area to say hello to our team!
