International Delegations and Companies Have Significant Presence at NAB 2012
"As the world's largest media and entertainment event, NAB Show draws attendees and exhibitors from all corners of the globe," said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. "Each year, around 30 percent of NAB Show attendees travel from outside the U.S. to this must-see event."
NAB Show has once again been selected from among all shows by the U.S. Department of Commerce as the most critical business-to-business industry event to attend for this sector. NAB Show is a proud participant of the agency's International Buyer Program, which recruits International Trade Delegations to select U.S. trade shows and facilitates matchmaking services that connect international buyers with U.S. suppliers. Last year the program helped support numerous international attendees representing 153 countries.
In addition to a strong presence of international attendees, NAB Show's Exhibit Hall will host more than 400 international corporations. Companies will showcase cutting-edge technology and services for the electronic media and entertainment industry in each area of the exhibit floor. Many of these companies will be featured in seven international pavilions, including the U.S. Export Pavilion, Bavarian Pavilion, Belgian Pavilion, Brazil Pavilion, French Pavilion, KOTRA (Korea Trace-Investment Promotion Agency) Pavilion, KBTA (Korea Broadcasting Technology Association) Pavilion and the UK Pavilion c/o Tradefair.
NAB Show also offers a variety of internationally-focused conference sessions as well as an International Trade Center (ITC) that features onsite services for international guests including Commercial Trade Specialists and multi-lingual staff in Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
