Washington, DC - Jun 30, 2011 - The National Association of Broadcasters has put out a call for speakers for the 2012 NAB Show. The NAB has also created a LinkedIn speaker alumni community and a Program Advisory Group.
The 2012 NAB Show will be held Apr. 14-19, 2012, in Las Vegas. The deadline to submit presentations is Oct. 21, 2011. Submissions must be relevant to the creation and distribution of media and filmed entertainment content, or address emerging trends and their impact on the media business.
Emphasis areas for the 2012 NAB Show program include broadcast engineering, broadcast management and strategy, content creation and commerce and military/government applications. The NAB Show educational program will again focus heavily on technology. Event organizers will consider proposals on new media for multiple platforms, new business models, and the impact of new technologies and marketplace realities on existing businesses and creative processes. Submission information is posted online.
The NAB Show has launched a speaker alumni group through LinkedIn to provide those who have contributed to the NAB Show in the past a way to engage with show organizers and each other.
The NAB Show is also forming a Program Advisory Group who will provide feedback on overall conference design and suggest new areas of programming to address the evolving media and entertainment landscape. Nominations for this group may be sent to NAB Show staff via email to DBrasse@nab.org.
