We’ve been deeply entrenched in this market for over a decade and have been involved in facilitating the most watched and most innovative live streamed events in history and wanted to summarize and offer a best practice white paper to the market. We are also seeing a tremendous increase in amplifying live events and sharing them with viewers on any connected device, which is part of our DNA. Our white paper addresses all of the key elements in the execution process and address how to transform the viewer into a collaborative participant – which benefits all stakeholders “said Bulldog DM CEO and Founder, John Petrocelli.
