If you are attending the 2017 NAB Show, and you want to understand the commercial and technical issues that are driving the industry forward, you don’t want to miss the sixth annual Media Technology Summit.
11:00am – 3:00pm, Sunday, April 23, 2017
Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N249
We’ve worked hard to bring together an outstanding line-up of technology and business thought leaders from all parts of the media technology ecosystem, and we are very grateful that this incredible group has agreed to take part in this year’s event and share their experiences with our audience.
The full conference agenda is at the bottom of this post.
This summit is the one place at the NAB Show where C-Level executives from each part of the media ecosystem discuss the commercial issues facing their organizations, and how this has and will impact their technology investment and deployment strategies. Whether you are a media company, technology supplier, finance professional, or industry strategist, if you want to understand the executive perspective on business developments in the media technology sector, we’re sure you will find the conference to be a thought-provoking kickoff to the NAB Show. It’s also a great networking opportunity.
In addition to executive panel discussions, we will also provide an overview of the most up-to-date industry market research and analysis. This includes preliminary findings from the 2017 Devoncroft Partners Big Broadcast Survey, the industry’s definitive demand-side market study, and the 2017 Global Market Valuation Report (GMVR), which is published by IABM DC, a 50-50 joint-venture between Devoncroft Partners and industry trade association IABM.
If you have not yet participated in the 2017 Big Broadcast Survey, you can register here and join thousands of your colleagues worldwide in the definitive study of media industry trends.
If you’d like to attend the Summit, all you need is an NAB Show badge. So please bring any colleagues interested in the changing landscape of media technology.
You can also register using code ATT2.
This event has been standing-room-only for the past several years, and we are expecting a large turn-out, so please come early.
