Legacy broadcasting is increasingly giving way to user-generated, highly-interactive online broadcasting, and Seattle is at the forefront of this burgeoning industry. Come to learn about how Twitch, YouTube, and eSports are redefining entertainment for younger audiences, how Seattle is positioned as a leading city in those industries, and opportunities for engaging with this new industry.
