The 2020 NAB Show New York, which was due to take place 21-22 October is following the spring event’s lead and going virtual.
The announcement came in the form of a letter from NAB’s executive vice president of Conventions and Business Operations, Chris Brown. He said that the decision is based on surveying of the show community and consultation with state and local officials in New York, as well as the Javits Convention Center, where the event was scheduled to take place.
The virtual event will take place during the autumn, though no specific date was provided at this time.
“Our goal for the digital experience is to provide a valuable forum for the industry to restart, refocus and reengage,” said Brown.
Additional details are expected in the coming weeks.
Brown concluded his letter by saying that both the 2021 NAB Show in Las Vegas and 2021 NAB Show New York are expected to take place in person.
