NAB Show 2020 Cancelled #NABShow #NAB2020
NAB Cancelled due to Coronavirus
After Adobe, AJA, Avid, Boris FX, Ross Video, Western Digital, Nikon, and others have backed out of the show, NAB has officially cancelled. Word is that they may reschedule for later in the year.
NAB Show 2020 is just around the corner. Here’s your definitive guide to post-production events and NAB Survival info for NAB 2020! Plan your trip to maximize your time so you don’t miss the presentations and events that you really want to attend.
Contact Michele Terpstra with any information you would like posted about your booth or event, or to correct any errors.
NAB takes place every year at:
Las Vegas Convention Center
3150 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89109.
Phone: (702) 892-0711
This year, NAB will run Sunday through Wednesday, which is a big change from the Monday through Thursday schedule it has always been.
- Sunday, April 19 – 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
- Monday, April 20 – 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 21 – 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
- Wednesday, April 22 – 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Register for NAB here. Register by mid-March to receive your badge in the mail! U.S. media registering after Friday and international press will need to pick up badges onsite at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Free Exhibits Pass Codes
- Digital Anarchy – LV4588
- Bluefish 444 – LV6677
- Maxon – LV9469
- Grass Valley – LV9884
- SFCutters – LV9477
- EEG Video – LV5265
Vendors at the show each have their own free code. There’s a competition put on by the show for exhibitors to get at least 300 sign-ups. See below in the vendor grid for some free codes. I would recommend that you register for a free one, even if you aren’t sure that you can make it to the show. The code will save you about $150 on a pass. Let us know if your booth has a code and we’ll add it to the list.
There are loads of free guest passcodes for a Free Exhibits Pass on Twitter now, but here are a few of our vendors.
It’s a bit early but codes are starting to trickle in. We’ll have them listed as soon as we hear about them.
