New York Video is a group of entrepreneurs curating the future of online video. Once a month, Steven Rosenbaum, who serves as the event host and M.C., organizes this networking event through the popular social site, Meetup. This month's Meetup was held at AOL's headquarters in Manhattan with a bargain admission of only $10 per person.
Upon arrival, a receptionist greeted guests and issued them a name tag. From 6:30pm to 7pm networking began as participants mingled and enjoyed an assortment of pizza and beer. Presentations started at 7pm. For this particular event, there were five presenters: ExpoTV, Videoart, Chatand, Condition One and Lessons From My Early Twenties. Each presenter was given 5 minutes to share their creations with the audience. Before the presentations even started, employers in the audience were given the opportunity to mention current job openings. Presentations ended at 8pm followed by another thirty minutes of networking. This was my first networking event in New York City. I was impressed with the quality of the event and the great group of people who attended.
