We kicked it off with a keynote from Jason Kilar, CEO of Hulu who got us off to a great start and told us about their history and  vision of media in the future, and why their customers call Hulu "a brain-spray of awesome."

We had support from our sponsor MovieLabs, and early feedback of the event has been really positive.   It looks like we facilitated some good information sharing and helped build new relationships, and we'll look to do more of the same in the future.
