Dear SMTE Community,

As the television industry and our entire nation face an unprecedented crisis, the National Association of Broadcasters commends television broadcasters for your dedication to serving your communities.

Your safety and well-being are of the utmost importance to us during this ongoing pandemic. With that in mind, we have decided not to move forward with the 2020 Sales and Management Television Exchange (SMTE) in Louisville on September 24-25 as previously scheduled. Instead, we will produce a digital event to bring our community together and showcase the best of what SMTE has to offer.

Together with the SMTE committees, we are committed to providing an alternative solution that will provide meaningful engagement, thought leadership, networking opportunities and insights to drive our industry forward.

While our thoughts are with those who have been directly affected by the pandemic, we are grateful for your support, which makes SMTE a success year after year. We will be in touch as plans for the digital event develop. In the meantime, may you and your loved ones continue to remain safe in the months to come.

Warm Regards,



April Carty-Sipp
Executive Vice President, Industry Affairs
