NAB Show NY Being Converted to an Online Event

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has announced that its New York Show is being converted to an online event because of COVID-19 concerns and restrictions. The 2020 NAB Show NY was originally going to be co-located with the AES Convention on Oct. 21-22 at the Javits Convention Center.

The NAB's Executive VP of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown has issued the following letter regarding 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 and include TVNewsCheck’s TV2025 and Post|Production World Online, produced in partnership with Future Media Conferences, among other prominent conference programs. 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.
