NAB Show 2020 is closely monitoring COVID-19 to ensure a “safe and productive” experience
The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), organizer of NAB Show, affirmed the 2020 NAB Show is set to take place as planned, April 18 – 22 in Las Vegas. The association is closely following COVID-19 development, commonly known as coronavirus, and “is prepared” to devote “whatever resources necessary” to ensure a safe and productive NAB Show experience, as stated in the press release.
The health and safety of attendees and participants are NAB’s “top priority”. Currently, the organization is:
- Adhering to all guidance and recommended safety measures issued by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health organizations.
- Working with the Las Vegas Convention Center, the airport authority, and area hotels and resorts to coordinate appropriate safety procedures.
- Following CDC recommendations and protocols for heightened levels of cleanliness at event facilities.
- Making accommodations and actively encouraging attendees to take common-sense precautions and follow CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of illness.
- Ensuring medical care is readily accessible to address immediate health concerns.
- Working with China-based exhibitors and registered attendees to evaluate options for those unable to attend due to travel restrictions. Of note, NAB Show attendance from China, although growing, represented less than 2 percent of total registered attendees in 2019.
