So you’ve thought about attending Nabshow but you weren’t sure if it was for you. Are you in broadcast, radio, tv, film, a filmmaker, your church has a media department or the like. Well this is certainly the right show for you.
I’ve been attending the better part of a decade now and I must say I’ve seen the trends change, new products means new vendors, and even can mean that Nabshow will be the only show they attend this year if they have to choose. Why is that…well between the fact that it’s held in Las Vegas Nevada the largest convention destination in America and also because over 8 decades they’ve really grown a huge show with something for everyone..! With 90,000+ media and entertainment professionals from over 150 countries your guaranteed to meet someone who shares similar interest and it’s likely you’ll hit it off. One of the biggest benefits for me is one the networking, and two getting the opportunity to get one of one with the engineers, or the ceo of a company. In fact every year I attend I feel that much more connected to the industry because I’m always making new contacts and many are now friends! That’s invaluable in my opinion!
So social media is huge and not going away any time soon. What does that mean to you. Well if your not following me already nows the time to start. I and many other video pros will be attending if not speaking, sharing live tweets, facebook, or blogging their experience. So again for me now that social networking is being done online with all my followers all year long this is the one show the majority of your followers will attend. I’m able to actually meet in person many of my followers and friends I’ve made online. This is so valuable. You never know when that one person you met at Nab could hook you up with a gig, connect you with contacts, or even get opportunities from vendors like demoing products for them. I can say this…social media alone is not enough. Getting out to actually meet people face to face is beyond valuable. Think a dating site…you’d feel like you’ve got a great online connection going…take that to the next level and actually meet that person. Nabshow is the one stop that will have you covered for just about anything and everything media related!
Are you considering Nabshow now..? Have you not signed up yet? How do I do that and do I need to do anything special or just show up? Well the easiest way to get started is go over to nabshow.com
This is my checklist:
Once you arrive in Las Vegas:
Aside from all this just come on out and have some fun. You may want to pack an empty suitcase or one that can expand bigger because it won’t be long and you’ll be loaded with free T-Shirts, cups, stickers, flyers, and whatever else vendors might be giving out. Be prepared to carry something because it’s not unlikely you’ll get some cool give away(in fact you 100% will-only way you won’t is if you do not attend;).
So here are a few links to help you get started:
