NAB Show New York Expands Show Floor Offerings
Produced by the National
Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and held November 9-10 at the
Javits Convention Center in New York City, the 2016 NAB
Show New York 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 at NAB Show New York 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 New York will also feature a new Drone
Pavilion, where attendees can learn about and operate the latest drone
NAB Show New York will comprise 300+ exhibitors, featuring some of the
world's leading brands and companies, including Adobe (News - Alert), Avid, BlackMagic
Design, Canon, JVC, Panasonic, and Sony, many of which are expanding
their presence and bringing cutting-edge innovations to the show.
First-time exhibitors include Akamai (News - Alert), Arista Networks, CCPIT.ECC, Draco
Broadcast and IBM Cloud Video.
"These are positive developments that ilustrate the dynamic nature of
this industry," said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and
Business Operations Chris Brown. "The new branding has allowed us to
leverage the power of NAB Show and the NAB Show 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.
Finally, the Post|Production
Conference will expand with three new workshops highlighting drones,
4K and high dynamic range production.
The co-located InfoComm
Connections will feature four new conferences, including The New
Learning Technology Landscape; Exceptional Corporate Events; Digital
Signage Summit, produced by Invidis Consulting; and Collaborate,
produced by InfoComm and IMCCA. InfoComm International is the global
trade association representing the commercial audiovisual and
