The National Association of Broadcasters has purchased the assets of the Content and Communications World (CCW) and Satellite Communications Conference and Expo (SATCON) events from JD Events, a leading trade show organizer. CCW and SATCON, held annually in November, are co-located at the Javits Convention Center in NYC. The two events will complement NAB’s existing trade shows and events, including NAB Show, held in Las Vegas annually in April.
CCW is the leading media, entertainment and communications technology event of its kind in New York with a focus on content creation, management and delivery technologies. SATCON offers education and exhibits serving companies in the satellite-enabled communications and content delivery industry. The 2013 CCW (which included SATCON) broke all previously held event attendance records with 6,898 attendees, a 22% increase from 2012.
“We have made these additions to the NAB event family with the goal of growing both the attendee and exhibitor base of what has emerged as an important East Coast venue for the content community,” said Executive Vice President of NAB Conventions and Business Operations, Chris Brown. “We look forward to developing this event and serving the unique needs of this very important media market.”
