NAB Show will host 60 international delegations, including delegations attending for the first time from Croatia, Israel, Malaysia, Norway and United Arab Emirates. Approximately 30 percent of the event's 90,000+ attendees will travel from 155 countries to NAB Show, held April 6-11 in Las Vegas.
"NAB Show places significant value on international participation from attendees and businesses." said NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton. "We have become the world’s largest annual international media and entertainment event by recognizing the global nature of the business and creating the ideal environment where deals get done and the best ideas are exchanged."
NAB Show participates in the U.S. Department of Commerce's International Buyer Program, which recruits International Trade Delegations to select U.S. trade shows and connects international buyers with U.S. suppliers.
NAB Show's Exhibit Hall will host nearly 600 companies that are based outside of the United States. From global leaders like Sony (Japan) and Samsung (South Korea) to hundreds of others like Vizrt (Norway), Dalet Digital (France), and Quantel (UK), these international companies will showcase cutting-edge technology solutions and services from around the world. The exhibition will also feature pavilions from Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, Korea and the UK, as well the Department of Commerce's U.S. Export Pavilion.
This year NAB Show will acknowledge India's 100 year anniversary of film creation by presenting a special award at the 2013 TV & Film Awards Gala presented by NY Festivals on Tuesday, April 9. A session featuring top level entertainment executives from India discussing the growth of content produced by India's creative community will also be presented that day within the Creative Master Series Conference.
NAB Show also offers a variety of internationally-focused conference sessions and an International Trade Center (ITC) that features onsite services for international guests including Commercial Trade Specialists and multi-lingual staff in up to eight languages.
