NAB has announced it has been unable to reschedule this year’s show, and so will now turn its focus to October’s NAB Show New York.
In a statement, NAB president and CEO Gordon Smith said: “In light of the current circumstances, it is impossible to hold a rescheduled 2020 NAB Show this year. We will instead proceed with a two-pronged approach to deliver as much value as possible under these circumstances to our exhibitors, partners, and the broadcast industry as a whole.”
NAB plans to launch a digital experience titled NAB Show Express, targeted to launch in April.
NAB Show New York, which is due to take place 21st-22nd October, will be enhanced with new programmes, partners and experiences.
“NAB Show New York represents the best opportunity for companies to announce and showcase their latest innovations and comes at a perfect time for the industry to gather face-to-face to restart, refocus, and reengage as we move forward together,” said Smith.
Smith also added that plans have already begun for the 2021 NAB Show, which will take place in Las Vegas 11-14th April 2021.
