Frugal will be t NAB this year, will you? That's right it is that time again when to get out your walking shoes. There are miles of exhibit floor to explore for to interview exhibitors about the latest and greatest for the Frugal Filmmaker. Monday thru Wednesday we will be wandering the halls.
A little background on the NAB show. The National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas is the biggest media convention of the year. NAB is one of the biggest conventions to hit Las Vegas. 91,000+ media and entertainment professionals from 150+ countries; 63 delegations attend. They spend over $20.7 billion (USD) in purchasing power. With over 1,500+ Exhibiting companies and 805,000 net square feet of floor space this convention is huge.
Every industry employs audio and video to communicate, educate and entertain. They all come together at NAB Show for creative inspiration and next-generation technologies to help breathe new life into their content: Broadcast, Digital Media, Film, Entertainment, Telecom, Production/ Post-Production, Education, Houses of Worship, Advertising, Military/Government, Retail, Security, Sports, IT and more. A few years ago the show was opened up to all media producers as we use some of the same gear. Now I would say media is more important than broadcasting.
