Every year NAB Show plays host to a number of exciting awards programs. This year, we’re joining the fun with the first-ever NAB Show Product of the Year Awards, and nominations are now open!

“People attend the NAB Show to see the very latest and greatest from the broadcasting industry,” says Eric Trabb, NAB Senior Vice President of Business Development. “To that end, the Product of the Year Awards allow us to recognize, identify, and celebrate the most significant product innovations within the Show and our global community — providing a unique opportunity for attendees and exhibitors alike.”

“The benefits of the NAB Show Product of the Year Awards program are two-fold,” says Steve Paulsen, Senior Director of Marketing Services, NewTek, and Chair of the NAB Exhibitor Advisory Committee. “It shines the spotlight on the exhibitors who have made notable contributions to our industry over the last year — helping them to increase the exposure of their products with buyers — while promoting continued innovation in the future.”
