WASHINGTON, D.C. – NAB Show New York was named last month as one of the fastest-growing trade shows by “Trade Show Executive” magazine. The largest media, entertainment and technology convention on the East Coast, NAB Show New York showcases the best in next-generation technology for media, entertainment and telecom professionals with conferences and workshops focused on television, film, satellite, online video, live events, advertising, corporate A/V, production and post.
“Trade Show Executive” ranked the 2016 NAB Show New York as one of the top 50 fastest-growing shows in the categories of total attendance and net square feet of exhibit space. Held November 9 – 10, 2016 at the Javits Convention Center in New York, NAB Show New York had a record 8,806 attendees representing a 22 percent increase over the 2015 show. The exhibition featured 362 companies spanning 63,011 net square feet of exhibit space, a 15 percent increase over 2015.
"It’s an honor to be recognized as one of ‘Trade Show Executive's Fastest 50’ shows," said Chris Brown, executive vice president of Conventions and Business Operations for the National Association of Broadcasters, which produces NAB Show New York. "The growth of this year’s show is a testament to the power of the NAB Show brand and our great team’s ability to produce a dynamic and productive experience for attendees and exhibitors.”
The 2017 NAB Show New York will be held October 18 – 19 at the Javits Convention Center, and as previously announced, will co-locate with the Audio Engineering Society's East Coast convention.
