NAB Show New York takes place October 18-19 at the Javits Convention Center in NYC, and for the first time will feature the ‘TV on Wall Street’ program, a one-day conference offering a business perspective on the economic influences driving the evolution of media, including new technologies and investment opportunities. Produced in partnership with S&P Global Market Intelligence and Summit Ridge Group, the conference will be held Thursday, October 19.
Leading media executives, analysts and financiers from a range of industry areas will provide attendees with an in-depth overview of investment implications for video services and shed light on revenue potential for multichannel and content providers in the coming years. The conference sessions will also address the challenges, opportunities and growth potential for online, landline and mobile delivery methods expected to dominate the video space.
The conference will kick off with a keynote conversation with Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for FOX Television Stations Joe Dorrego, led by Managing Director of Equity Research for Jefferies, LLC John Janedis. Dorrego, who oversees all financial functions for the station group, will address financial factors and industry trends affecting the television business, such as advertising and retransmission consent revenue, changing video consumption behavior, potential new revenue streams, and Wall Street’s perception of the television business.
“NAB Show New York’s proximity to Wall Street and its focus on media and technology uniquely positions the event to provide a deep dive into factors that are impacting business decisions and the financial state of the industry,” said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. “This new conference will undoubtedly provide attendees with insight and information they can take to the bank and use to manage their investments.”
The afternoon keynote will feature Julie Menin, the Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, an agency encompassing the key economic and creative sectors of film, TV, theater, music, advertising, publishing, digital content and real estate as it relates to these industries. In total, these portfolios account for over 305,000 jobs, and an economic output of $104 billion. Menin also oversees NYC Media, the largest municipal broadcasting entity in the country, including five TV Stations and a radio station with a reach of 18 million households in a 50-mile radius. Her keynote talk will focus on media’s role as a powerful economic driver to the New York economy.
