It’s over and most international visitors are now back at their desks ploughing through a mountain of emails.
So how did NAB go? Well, the NAB themselves seem happy with preliminary attendance figures of 92,112 attendees, which is very slightly up on 2011 figures (but only by 180 visitors). They also reported an increase in exhibitor numbers and a whopping 10% increase in floorspace to a massive 815,000 square feet.
For all the planning, whinging, moaning, sniping and complaining we do in the run up to NAB, we do more business here that at any other show in the world. With 151 countries represented it is truly international, with product launches galore.
We have tried to do the show justice over the last week or so, but in case you missed anything we covered our opulent new stand and third party networking, Christian Broadcast Network’s fabulous award from Broadcast Engineering, our thoughts on the DTV and their discussions in Las Vegas, important pieces of paper being signed with other Tech companies at the show, parties and what the IABM make of all these shenanigans.
In conclusion, we gave out lots of brochures, shook lots of hands, at least two people had terrible hangovers and one person may have wrestled a bear.
See you at the next one.
