A strong lineup of keynote sessions, insightful conversations and award ceremonies is confirmed for the NAB Show NY Content Theater. Located within the Experiential Zone on the show floor, the Content Theater will serve as the event’s main hub for collaboration and education October 19-20 at the Javits Center.
Following the successful return to an in-person NAB Show in Las Vegas in April 2022, NAB president and CEO Curtis LeGeyt will kick off the opening session of NAB Show NY with welcome remarks on October 19. Award-winning film producer and media industry analyst Evan Shapiro will follow LeGeyt with his keynote address, “Bringing Media Into the Current Century, Now.”
Other Content Theater sessions examine Web3’s impact on the business of media, the metaverse from a broadcast lens, OTT trends and shifts in the media landscape. In addition, leading media industry analyst Gordon Borrell will examine emerging opportunities for local TV and radio broadcasters stemming from changes in digital advertising in a session titled “How Local Broadcasters Are Preparing for Third Party Degradation and First Party Data Collection.”
