IABM prepares to promote collaboration and reward innovation at NAB Show

IABM, the international trade association for broadcast and media technology suppliers, will be out in force at NAB Show Las Vegas 2019 to support the 300+ member companies who are exhibiting at the show. Member services at the show include lounges, meeting rooms and IABM TV.

In addition, IABM is continuing its mission to drive collaboration between all sides of the industry through its Voice of the Customer event, State of the Industry breakfast session, leading a panel at Avid Connect and rewarding technology innovation with its BaM Awards party. IABM will also be distributing its Strategic Industry Analysis special report at the show, featuring up to the moment insight and analysis of the state and direction of the industry.

Voice of the Customer event – Sunday April 7, 3pm

The industry is moving away from transactional relationships to a new model where technology vendors and their end-user customers work together to solve problems in partnership. The IABM Voice of the Customer event is where all sides of the industry come together to discuss and define the future, and give delegates the insights they need to drive their business forward. The panel session features influential thought leaders from the leading edge of the broadcast and media industry lifting the lid on successful creative collaboration, illustrated with real-life case studies. Afterwards, there is a networking event where delegates can make new contacts and strengthen relationships. Venue, timings and free booking for this event here.

State of the Industry breakfast session – Monday April 8, 7.30am

The State of the Industry breakfast session features the latest IABM research, presented with commentary by IABM CEO, Peter White.

Stan Moote, IABM CTO, continues the session in conversation with industry innovators, both end-users and suppliers, who are successfully navigating these changes to deliver ‘order’ – and profitability – out of what has been initiated by ‘digital chaos’ but now has more far-reaching effects. Under the banner ‘Innovative perspectives – building success in times of change’, this session is a must-attend event; get the inside track from those who are already charting the course.

How cloud and AI are changing the B&M industry – at Avid Connect, Saturday April 6, 3.45pm

This panel session, led by Lorenzo Zanni, IABM Head of Insight & Analysis, will examine the business and workflow drivers behind the growth of cloud and AI as we move into a multi-platform world. The latest IABM data on technology buyers’ AI/cloud adoption, preferences and challenges will underpin and inform the discussion. The session will also be looking to cut through the hype to uncover the reality: where are the true deployments, where is adoption only at an early stage, and what problems yet need to be solved.

Strategic Industry Analysis – special report for NAB show

IABM’s Business Intelligence Unit has again created a special report to be released during NAB Show which brings together key findings from IABM’s wide ranging supply, buying, business and technology trends. Previous editions of this report have been widely praised as an essential and timely industry strategic overview. Copies can be obtained from the IABM booth and member lounges, and there will also be an online, interactive version of the report.

IABM member lounges and meeting rooms

IABM has three member lounges at NAB Show 2019 – N110LMR, S215LMR and C556 – with bookable meeting rooms in the North and South lounge locations. With ample seating and Wi-Fi available, the lounges are a great location for members to conduct meetings away from the booth or to catch up on business in a quiet, stress-free environment. Meeting room bookings open 48 hours prior to the show, online or in person at member lounges.


IABM TV will not only be relaying members’ news from the show floor, but also hosting panels at the show on each block of the BaM Content Chain®. After the show, all the content will be added to the Knowledge Vault on the IABM website – the industry’s most comprehensive and up-to-the-minute reference resource.
