The NAB today issued the following letter from Chris Brown, EVP of conventions and business operations, on plans for the 2020 NAB Show New York:
Dear NAB Show New York Community,
Taking into account the health and safety of our show community, we have decided to transition NAB Show New York, originally scheduled for October 21-22, to a new digital event building on the success of NAB Show Express. This decision follows extensive surveying of our show community and consultation with state and local officials in New York, as well as the Javits Convention Center.
The online event will take place in fall 2020. Our goal for the digital experience is to provide a valuable forum for the industry to restart, refocus and reengage.
We are developing a robust platform for exhibitors to share product information, provide demonstrations and make announcements. Additionally, the online event will provide premium educational content and unique opportunities for the community to network virtually. We will share additional details on the digital event in the coming weeks and months.
We look forward to your continued engagement and convening in person in 2021 at NAB Show in Las Vegas and NAB Show New York.
