WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Following the success of the New Media Lounge at the 2014 NAB Show, New Media Expo (NMX) and NAB have agreed to expand their collaboration. NMX will co-locate its entire event and introduce tens of thousands of new media content creators and disruptive businesses to the NAB Show, April 13 - 16, 2015.
Rick Calvert, NMX CEO and co-founder said, "We are huge fans of the NAB Show. We believed this co-location was inevitable for years now so we are beyond excited to be side-by-side with the NAB Show. The Media Revolution is happening and this is just the latest sign of the convergence of new and traditional media. There are so many exhibitors, services and educational sessions our community can benefit from at NAB Show."
"We are delighted that New Media Expo will be collocating with NAB Show in 2015," said Chris Brown, executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations at NAB. "The world of media continues to evolve rapidly, and an entirely new video ecosystem has emerged on the web - an increasingly important ecosystem that NMX serves well. Bringing that audience together with the NAB Show audience promises to drive tremendous synergy."
New Media Expo features some of the most recognized bloggers, podcasters, Web TV content creators, and social media visionaries during more than one hundred educational sessions, as well as a traditional tradeshow.
In addition, New Media Expo will facilitate its popular Speed Networking sessions at NAB Show, a non-traditional method of introducing content creators and brands during a series of one-on-one meetings to discuss how they can collaborate and partner together.
