NAB Makes Expo Purchase
The National Association of Broadcasters says it has purchased the assets of the Content and Communications World and Satellite Communications Conference and Expo events from JD Events, a trade show organizer. CCW and SATCON, held annually in November, are co-located at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
CCW is an event based in New York with a focus on content creation, management, and delivery technologies. SATCON offers education and exhibits serving companies in the satellite-enabled communications and content delivery industry. The 2013 CCW (which included SATCON) had 6,898 attendees, a 22 percent increase from 2012.
"We have made these additions to the NAB event family with the goal of growing both the attendee and exhibitor base of what has emerged as an important East Coast venue for the content community," said Executive Vice President of NAB Conventions and Business Operations, Chris Brown. "We look forward to developing this event and serving the unique needs of this very important media market."
