It is that time of the year again. In less than a week more than 100,000 people will take the city of Las Vegas with a storm to attend the ultimate event for the media, entertainment and technology industry, NAB Show 2018. Scheduled for April 7-12, NAB Show will witness more than 100,000 attendees, 200+ sessions, over 1700+ exhibitors and above all, countless networking opportunities.

This conference has a lot to offer to its attendees, and this year the event has been beefed up with a lot more of exciting stuff like new conference programs, international pavilions, community mixers, Braindate and much more.

Here are some tips that might help you sail through the NAB Show without missing the essential programs.

1)  Getting started: The first step to getting yourself accustomed to the convention is to explore the floor plan which gives you an option to search for exhibitors, booths, sessions, speakers, etc. Also, you can save the things you want to remember with a free My Show Planner account.

Download the NAB app on your smartphone to have it handy.

2)  New attractions: During the show, while you will be busy exploring the different solutions and tools, you should also check out the new things happening at the conference, and you should plan them before you get there. Here are our ‘TOP five’ picks for this year

a. AI Experiential zone

b. Ad Innovations

c. Next Gen TV Autonomous Transport

d. Braindate

e. South Upper Draft House

3)  Bring these to the show 

a. Comfortable bag: You will collect a lot of paper and swag at the show. The last thing you want is an uncomfortable bag that cannot hold it all

b. Your badge: How else will you gain an entry into the show

c. Other utilities: Business cards, phone charger, hand sanitizer, etc.

4)  Transport: The organizers at NAB have made it easy for you to get around this year. Have a look at the Shuttle Bus Schedule and save it for use  during the show

5)  Plan and prioritize: If you are attending NAB this year, you should spend most of your coming week in looking at the different activities, events, sessions, etc. happening in and around NAB. Register for the event as soon as you find them. Remember, you won’t get to see everything. The key is to plan and prioritize.
