NABOB Conference Sets Dates For Virtual ‘By Black’ Affair


WASHINGTON, D.C. — The COVID-19 pandemic will not stop the NABOB Conference. It just won’t be an in-person gathering this year.

As such,the NABOB 44th Annual Fall Broadcast Conference and 20th Power of Urban Radio Forum will be held virtually, over three days in mid-October.

The dates selected: Wednesday October 14 through Friday, October 16.

The all-virtual Conference will be held jointly with the U.S. Black Chambers, aleading national advocacy organization for Black-owned businesses.

The partnership with the U.S. Black Chambers, NABOB says, will enable conference attendees to see and hear speakers and participate in the discussion of broader issues that impact all Black owned businesses.

At this year’s event, which is being brand as the “By Black Conference,” NABOB-PUR-USBC will present expert panelists and speakers to address advertising, programming, ratings, digital technology, financing, business development and federal regulatory issues that broadcasters are addressing in today’s competitive marketplace.

In addition, as the conference will be less than three weeks ahead of the November 3 elections, key political figures will be participating in the event.
