NAB 2015 Las Vegas Review - An Experience like No Other

NAB Show 2015 #ItsRubeeJewel

NAB 2015 was exactly, if not better, than I thought it would be. It was 5 days full of Sessions, Luncheons, Presentations Award Ceromonies, Networking and Exibits. This year over 100,000 people registered to attend this highly anticipated convention. Every year NAB conventions are known to bring out some of the most brilliant and famous people in the radio & television industry.

Some of the really nice sessions and radio/tv luncheons kicked off the convention. Those events I really enjoyed. NAB President and Ceo Gordon H. Smith opened the convention. The first award for the week went to Jerry Lewis who received the Distinguished Service Award. The first television luncheon for NAB honored Shonda Rhimes creator and executive producer of shows like Greys Anatomy and Scandal and recent television hit How To Get Away With Murder. The luncheon also presented Actress, Producer & motivational speaker Traci Ellis Ross with the television Chairman's Award. Other Luncheons held during NAB were the NAB Crystal Radio Awards with keynote speaker Actress, Author and Radio Personality Marilu Henner with NAB Radio Broadcasting Hall of Fame Inductee Kein and Bean the luncheon was sponsored by ASCAP.

Beyond the ceromonies and luncheons there was a long list of sessions to attend with guest speakers, Ceos and representatives from major networks and companies, such as, CBS, MSNBC, NFL, TV Guide, IHeart, NBC Universal, Fox Broadcasting.  Many more sessions included; numerous top production, technology and audio companies.

The biggest attraction for me was all of the different exhibitors from all over the world who came, set up, and demonstrated their new and most popular products.

Camera Angles

Some of my favorite's were those who displayed camera visuals and effects. Creating real live sets from tv shows and movies were fantastic. Also when exhibitors had cameras for home decor, sporting events and more. I really enjoyed getting shots on the sets and I was even able to test out the camera quality by going on the sets myself & seeing myself on camera.  Plus I was able to experience graphics at its finest, as I tried out the green screens, seeing how they worked to create a set that I would've never expected. I also enjoy all the droids thourougly located in the Aerial Robotics Pavillion where you could get an up close and persoñal look at technology in action even while you were fully enclosed in its flying cage.

Arcades were another enjoyable experience.  The decompression dens included; an oxygen and massage bar, a silent disco and old school gaming.
 
Although there were some fun and interesting things to do, one of the greatest things about NAB is the wide range of networking experiences you could have. With lots of career opportunities to get your foot in the door or networking for a career in broadcasting.  There were even opportunities to upgrade your knowledge of the business with the various; training academies, bootcamps, seminars, media sessions and career day.
 
Now NAB wasn't just about business there were definately some great places to sit back for a second and relax.  If you want just have a drink, or to grab a bite and maybe even listen to a dj spin some good music. On top of that, could you imagine, such a huge event without there being parties, after parties and more parties.

Although I enjoy myself beyond words, it was the longest 4 days with thousands of things to do and nowhere near enough time to do them all. Hopefully, next time I can say it was an experience like no other.  I'm so happy I had the opportunity to attend this year. I am looking forward to attending next year.  This year it was said that over 100,000 people from all over the world registered to attend. The NAB convention, I am sure, next year it will be bigger and even better.
