WASHINGTON—New Media Expo and NAB have agreed to expand their collaboration after declaring the New Media Lounge at the 2014 NAB Show to be a success. NMX will co-locate its event with the NAB Show, April 13-16, 2015.
“We believed this co-location was inevitable for years now, so we are beyond excited to be side-by-side with the NAB Show,” said Rick Calvert, NMX CEO and co-founder. “The media revolution is happening, and this is just the latest sign of the convergence of new and traditional media.”
New Media Expo will also facilitate Speed Networking sessions, a nontraditional method of introducing content creators and brands during a series of one-on-one meetings to discuss potential collaboration opportunities.
“The world of media continues to evolve rapidly, and an entirely new video ecosystem has emerged on the Web – an increasingly important ecosystem that NMX serves well,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations at NAB. “Bringing that audience together with the NAB Show audience promises to drive tremendous synergy."
New Media Expo launched in 2006 and features bloggers, podcasters, Web TV content creators and social media visionaries during more than one hundred educational sessions, as well as a traditional tradeshow.
