The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS (NAB) SHOW NEW YORK, slated for NOVEMBER 9th-10th at the JAVITS CONVENTION CENTER, will feature an enhanced show floor with new attractions, pavilions and an expanded list of exhibiting companies.
NAB acquired CONTENT & COMMUNICATIONS WORLD (CCW) in 2014, and in 2015 reintroduced it as NAB SHOW NEW YORK. The event, featuring SATCON (an event-within-the-event focused on satellite technology), draws more than 7,000 attendees and includes 80+ educational sessions focused on the intersection of media, entertainment and technology.
Debuting this year are multiple new experiences, some of which originated at the annual NAB SHOW in LAS VEGAS. These include VR VILLAGE, featuring advances in virtual reality technology; CONNECTED MEDIA|IP, a community of exhibits dedicated to exploring the continuing evolution of mobile, social and cloud services; and INNOVATION LAB, where entrepreneurs demonstrate innovative products and services providing critical solutions for the media industry. NAB SHOW N.Y. will also feature a new DRONE PAVILION, where attendees can learn about and operate the latest technology.
Commented NAB EVP/Conventions & Business Operations CHRIS BROWN: “These are positive developments that illustrate the dynamic nature of this industry, The new branding has allowed us to leverage the power of NAB SHOW and its community to offer an enriched experience for attendees as they explore the latest and most important trends in broadcast, media and entertainment in the world’s most media-centric city.”
New for 2016, 50+ educational sessions will be held on five INSPIRATION STAGES located throughout the show floor. Each stage will feature 30-minute sessions on topics such as NEW YORK film and television productions, live events, news, innovation investments, advanced advertising, over-the-top content, virtual reality and satellite technology. Additionally, the show floor will feature an area dedicated to networking and interacting with session speakers and panelists.
