August 17, 2009

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ — Gravity Summit is pleased to announce that CNN.com Live, the Internet’s only multi-stream live video news service, will be exclusively streaming Gravity Summit’s upcoming Social Media Marketing for Business conference at the Harvard Faculty Club in Cambridge, MA on August 31, 2009.

Online users can go to www.CNN.com/Live on the 31st at 9:00 a.m. ET to watch Gravity Summit at Harvard’s complete agenda which includes an impressive line-up of speakers such as MC Hammer, Gary Vaynerchuk, Dunkin’ Donuts, Southwest Airlines, the American Red Cross, CNN, Domino’s, EMC, Arnold Worldwide, SHIFT Communications and Rebel Industries.

CNN.com Live, the only offering of its kind, has emerged as one of the top destinations for live events on the web. This past July, CNN.com served 10.5 million live video streams for the Michael Jackson memorial; and, on Inauguration Day, broke the record for the largest live video event in Internet history.

“The opportunity for our speakers and sponsors to reach a massive and highly desirable audience exclusively through one of CNN.com Live’s streams is groundbreaking for us. Having your brand being perceived as relevant via social media is quickly becoming the standard by which businesses and brands are being judged by consumers,” said Rodney Rumford, founder of Gravity Summit. “Social relevancy is quickly becoming a currency in the digital world and no company can afford to be socially bankrupt; especially in these economic times.”

“Gravity Summit consistently educates, informs and empowers audiences with very socially relevant content of high value and our event at Harvard event is no exception,” added Beverly Macy, CEO of Gravity Summit. “Our choice to stream exclusively on CNN.com Live allows our speakers and sponsors the opportunity to be highly relevant and well positioned amongst senior executives and decision makers from Fortune 500 companies and small businesses.”

Gravity Summit events help bridge the gap between the new Social Media Marketing tools and the business community, by educating and informing marketing professionals, small business owners, advertisers, and c-Level executives, and others, about the exciting new marketing and communications landscape that is evolving daily. Gravity Summit Harvard is sponsored in part by Quicken Online, part of Intuit Inc.’s Consumer Group; Cisco Consumer Group, Visible Technologies TweetPhoto and PitchEngine. Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available.
