For 15 years, C-level executives have gathered in January at "iDate," the industry's largest annual trade show and expo. iDate focuses on assembling global dating CEOs to identify new opportunities, develop ideas, gain insight for higher levels of traffic and earn more revenue. Catherine will speak on the main stage about Live Video and Its Impact on The Dating Business.

“I’m looking forward to talking about live streaming video and the positive impact we’ve seen it have with our users,” said Catherine Cook Connelly, VP of Brand Strategy at The Meet Group.

In March, Catherine is scheduled to join a panel discussion at SXSW on the topic Empowering Girls with Tech: Breaking Barriers. The global conference provides an opportunity for professionals at every level to participate, learn, and network in a week-long conference and festivals that celebrate the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries.

“Getting young girls involved in pursuing STEM and entrepreneurship is important,” said Connelly. “I’m excited to be a part of this panel that explores drivers to get girls interested in these fields, the barriers they face both systemically and culturally, and strategies the panelists have seen work in the past.”
