The new exhibitors join NAB Show anchor exhibitors including Adobe, Canon, Dolby, Harris, JVC, Microsoft, Panasonic, Sony, Thomson and the Vitec Group to showcase digital content, technology and innovation across consumer and business segments.
More than 1,600 companies will exhibit at this year’s NAB Show, including representatives from 40 countries and across 19 industries such as cable, content owners/programmers, film and entertainment, enterprise, social media, telecom, wireless and more.
“These new exhibitors showcase our reach across industries and our commitment to bringing together all of these markets under the common denominator of enriching programming across the entire content spectrum,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president of conventions and business operations at NAB.
