Delivering the business case for LGBT diversity and inclusion London, 2nd March 2016 – Groovy Gecko will be providing the live stream for the Economist’s Pride and Prejudice event, taking place in three global locations on 3rd March 2016.

Through the Pride & Prejudice event and its dedicated website (http://prideandprejudice.economist.com), the Economist aims to advance the global discussion on LGBT diversity and inclusion, particularly by focusing on the economic and business costs of LGBT discrimination and the profitable opportunities that lie in overcoming it.

Groovy Gecko will deliver a live, 24-hour stream onto the publisher’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheEconomist/), website (http://www.economist.com) and the dedicated Pride and Prejudice website (http://prideandprejudice.economist.com).

The stream will be delivered using Groovy Gecko’s Live Presentation System (LPS), which incorporates Groovy Gecko’s social streaming platform, enabling delivery of fully produced live interactive video content into social media posts. The LPS also includes full support for mobile devices, as well as the ability to collect world-class statistics and tracking information from webcasts.
