Brandlive, a leading web-based platform for enterprise-class branded live video, today announced a partnership with Outdoor Industry Association (OIA), the leading trade association and voice of the outdoor recreation industry, serving more than 1300 manufacturers, distributors, specialty retailers, sales representatives and service providers.
OIA has selected Brandlive as the association’s platform of choice for live interactive video broadcasts for events. Several sessions during the upcoming Rendezvous event in Seattle will be broadcast live on the Brandlive platform, which enables customers such as OIA to have a custom-branded web experience that seamlessly combines live streaming video with live audience interaction and product information.
“Our goal with Brandlive is to bring Rendezvous and other events to as many OIA members as possible,” said Jennifer Pringle, OIA vice president of marketing & communications. “Brandlive is the logical choice for our live streaming video platform, not only because of the unique feature set of their platform, but also because many of our members, such as REI, Goal Zero, The North Face and Polartec, have vetted and use the platform.”
“Companies in the outdoor industry were among the first to recognize the power of the Brandlive platform and embrace it for a variety of use cases around the typical go-to-market process for physical product brands and retailers,” said Fritz Brumder, CEO and co-founder of Brandlive. “Our partnership with OIA is a reflection of our acceptance by that industry, and we look forward to working with such a forward-thinking trade association.”
