Washington, D.C. — Registration is open for the 2021 NAB Show, the premier convention for broadcasters and the broader media, entertainment and technology industries, taking place October 9–13, 2021 in Las Vegas. NAB Show co-located events, including Radio Show and NAB’s Sales and Management Television Exchange (SMTE), have also launched registration.

SMTE, October 8–9, is the industry’s only national conference focused on innovative revenue-generating strategies for small and medium market television stations and kicks off one day prior to the start of NAB Show. The Radio Show, October 13–14, co-produced by the Radio Advertising Bureau, offers comprehensive sessions, networking opportunities and technology presentations for the audio community to explore all aspects of radio, podcasting and streaming.

All NAB Show and co-located event registrants receive access to the NAB Show floor, open October 10–13, as well as all-access NAB Show Main Stage sessions and special events.

“We look forward to delivering the first live, major domestic industry event following a long hiatus for all events,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president and managing director, Global Connections and Events. “NAB Show represents a significant annual business catalyst for the media industry, which is eager to get back to doing business face-to-face, according to recent trade show attendee research. With momentum building toward the show in October, we continue to prioritize health and safety with a sound plan in place to deliver a safe experience for our community.”

Multiple registration packages and tiered options allow attendees to personalize their conference experience, access new content and product demonstrations and network across communities. Dual-site sessions, such as the previously announced partnership with SCTE·ISBE Cable-Tec Expo, increase flexibility as attendees return to in-person events.

NAB Show, Radio Show, SMTE and associated event registration packages are available here.

Qualified members of the media may apply for press registration here.
