30,000 Feet up – I’m on my way to #NABShow! @NABShow


…And away we go!

Right now I’m thirty-thousand feet up in the air, on my way to “Sin City” – Las Vegas, Nevada, for the 2019 NAB Show!  As usual, my level of excitement won’t let me settle-down, so I’ve started blogging while on the plane! (This DEFINITELY is a habit, now!!!)

Since “Every Story Starts HERE” (NAB Show’s Theme for 2019), let’s start-off by mentioning a little thing we’re doing – NAB Show LIVE!!!

Knock, knock – it’s SPROCKIT

The SPROCKIT program is composed of corporate and entertainment executives and helps spotlight the innovations that effect broadcasting. It’s a Bi-partite program, with the NAB show providing the SPROCKIT program with a showcase, and a sequence of private meetings for the programs participants that are carried out in Los Angeles, the Silicon Valley, and New York.  Maybe your company or product has what it takes to be part of this program! Check it out!

The continuing success of the NAB Shows’ SPROCKIT Program helps bring fresh ideas to the industry with the showcasing of the most dynamic handpicked start-ups. Sometimes new technologies have the potential to disrupt the industry; if that product’s advantages are worth the chaos their introduction might cause the industry, chances are that nextgen media tech will pass through SPROCKIT.  www.nabshow.com/show-floor/attractions-pavilions/sprockit

DO NOT OVERLOOK THE CONFERENCES!!!  There is SO MUCH discussed within them and so many sudden (and last minute) guest appearances it is UNREAL!  Executives from many different studios from the industry share secret after secret and so many things are bandied about, there is just too much to name!  Award-winning directors, show runners, creative crew, and studio and network production executives team-up for a presentation of their impressions on the crafting of content… So much to see, so much to hear…

The “Excitement Meter” has just hit 100 – and it only goes up to 10!!! – I’ve got to go – the flight attendants have demanded “Airplane Mode” – whatever THAT is!  I really must find out… (Is that a thing???) LOL – See you on Saturday the 6th… but don’t forget to tune-in on Monday April 8th for NAB Show LIVE!

…Wheeeeeee!  SEE YOU IN VEGAS!!!
