The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has announced the postponement of its Technology and Engineering Awards dinner, due to take place at NAB.
In a statement, NATAS President and CEO Adam Sharp said the organisation had taken the “difficult decision” in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The event had been scheduled for 19th April in Las Vegas, kicking off the NAB Show for a third year.
The statement continued, “In consultation with health officials, award recipients, and other prospective attendees, we determined that it was no longer prudent nor viable to move forward with our ceremony. The NAB Show has been a wonderful home for the Tech Emmys, and we intend to reschedule the ceremony to correspond instead with NAB’s fall convention in New York.”
Among the companies due to be honoured at the ceremony are Adobe, who pulled out of NAB earlier this week, AWS, Dejero, LiveU, Audinate, Canon, IBM, Masstech and Quantum.
