With 103,000 attendees from 161 countries and more than 1,800 exhibitors, NAB Show is the marketplace for solutions that transcend traditional broadcasting and embrace content delivery to new screens in new ways. From creation to consumption, across multiple platforms and countless nationalities, NAB Show aims to convene global visionaries to bring content to life in new and exciting ways.

NAB Show will debut two new events highlighting broadcast industry achievement. The NAB Achievement in Broadcasting Dinner will be held on 9 April 2018, at the Encore Las Vegas. A separate NAB: We Are Broadcasters Celebration will be held on 10 April 2018, at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

The events will shine a light on the broadcast industry, recognising individuals and companies for their contributions in advancing the industry through technology, public service and superior content.

The NAB: We Are Broadcasters Celebration is expected to include the presentation of the NAB Crystal Radio Awards and the NAB Crystal Heritage Award, in addition to the Radio and Television Engineering Achievement Awards and the Television Chairman’s Award.

“These changes are an opportunity to better highlight major awards and expose them to a broader NAB Show audience,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president of conventions and business operations at NAB. “The new schedule also reflects NAB’s focus on keeping the show fresh and relevant while continuing to highlight the great work our industry does from a business, creative and community perspective.”
