ITVFest Offers Spots for October Industry Expo

Join the Vermont Media Alliance and friends for the first annual media Expo being held at this years’ ITVFest. VMA has helped to organize this special event to brighten the spotlight on your business or organization as we work to cultivate more industry activity in Vermont. This will also be a great opportunity to meet the folks behind the newly formed Vermont Production Counsel (VPC) which will be launched at ITVFest. Both the VMA and the VPC are focused on raising visibility for media creators, helping Vermont grow as a hub of connectivity, and creating more work and creation opportunities within our beautiful state.
Each year the ITVFest brings together indie creators with the industry at large; it’s the perfect platform to showcase Vermont talent and businesses. This year we have an amazing group of talented creators and industry professionals, (HBO, OoYala, Viacom, IFC and so many more…), meeting one another on October 11th -14th in beautiful Manchester, Vermont.
