Sunday April 7 (Presentations 3pm - 5pm, Networking 5pm - 7pm)

The Wynn, Las Vegas

This is a must-attend session on the eve of NAB Show where technology suppliers and their customers come together to discuss and define the future of our industry. As well as arming delegates with the insights they need to drive their business forward, it also offers a unique networking opportunity to make new contacts and strengthen relationships.

We will be joined by a panel of influential thought leaders from the pinnacle of the broadcast and media technology industry to let us into the secrets of successful creative collaboration. And we’ll have real-life case studies, exploring how working together collaboratively offers both sides of the industry a better way forward.

Monday, April 8, 2019 | 7.30am – 10am – Ballroom B, Westgate Las Vegas Resort

Innovative perspectives – building success in times of change

The industry is moving on from simply accepting change to attempting to embrace it to create a profitable, sustainable future. To do this successfully requires help and direction – while everyone is driving towards OTT, linear TV ad revenues still underpin many broadcasters’ businesses.

The State of the Industry Breakfast features the latest IABM research, presented with commentary by IABM CEO, Peter White.

Stan Moote, IABM CTO, continues the session in conversation with industry innovators, both end-users and suppliers, who are successfully navigating these changes to deliver ‘order’ – and profitability – out of what has been initiated by ‘digital chaos’ but now has more far-reaching effects. This session is a must-attend event; get the inside track from those who are already charting the course.

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 | 6pm – 8pm – Ballroom B, Westgate Las Vegas Resort

This is the only event during NAB Show where you will see the top innovations from the show in one place.
