NAB Show Will Partner with BPL Broadcast to Debut Connected Media World
NAB Show, in partnership with BPL Broadcast, will debut Connected Media World, an exhibit area set to launch at the 2013 NAB Show April 6-11 in Las Vegas.
“As consumers continue to connect with media and entertainment in new and different ways, it's imperative for content owners and distributors to understand how this evolution impacts business and the overall consumer experience,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations.
The new exhibit area will showcase technologies and services that are advancing how consumers connect with media and entertainment.
Connected Media World will include companies specializing in "social TV”, application development, connected cloud services, broadband TV and OTT services.
The exhibit area also will include a demonstration stage and offer educational programming for NAB Show attendees.
"Through Connected Media World, we will showcase companies that are leading the 'connected consumer' experience,” Brown said.
Connected Media World will be located in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center and will be accessible to all NAB Show attendees.
"BPL's experience as a leading event and industry resource within the connected consumer space, combined with the NAB Show's prominence as the world's largest media and entertainment event, make for a fitting partnership," said Chris Boeree, chair of BPL Broadcast.
He added, "We look forward to working with NAB to provide a high-quality experience for NAB Show attendees and exhibitors."
