Matrix Postpones Summit Following NATPE MIAMI Cancellation


BOCA RATON, FLA. — On Thursday, with CES 2022 at its height — and reportedly with attendance at some 75% under the CES 2020 total tally — signs that NATPE MIAMI could be in danger arose with the news that Univision Communications would be cancelling its Tuesday morning breakfast session as part of the Opening Day festivities for the National Association of Television Program Executives’ signature event of the year.

As of 7:15pm Eastern Friday, NATPE Miami was still a go, with press confirmation and registration information sent to reporters with a January 12 deadline to submit COVID-19 vaccination status to the organization. Less than 24 hours later, the plug was pulled on NATPE Miami  — a victim of Omicron. That put the organizers of the “shoulder” Matrix Media Ad Sales Summit in motion on what to do with its January 2022 affair.

On Tuesday, a final decision was made to postpone the more intimate Matrix broadcast media industry gathering.
