The International Media Users Group and the MMB lost a good friend and great guy in 2013. Paul Izbicki sadly passed away in August. We've created a memorial page to honour his memory here.
The longest running all volunteer and not for profit event for production professionals returned for another great night. First held in 1998 the MMB has grown to be the one dinner you 'need' to be at during NAB.
The 2013 MediaMotion Ball was our biggest yet (over 400 people) with the industries finest at a relaxed event that gives you time to meet and talk to the 'who's who' in the video production, motion graphics and 3D fields.
The International Media Users Group (IMUG) MediaMotion Ball organizing team was proud to have Jonas Hummelstrand and Mark Christiansen as keynote speakers at the 16th annual MediaMotion Ball.
More details on the 2013 Keynote here.
Watch the short video below to see why the MediaMotion Ball is the 'must attend' event for so many at NAB..
This years MediaMotion Ball
Attendees enjoyed a fine multi-course sit down dinner & dessert, wine, and mingled with their industry friends and peers and went into the draw for the huge prize pool.
The MMB is always brought to you by the International Media Users Group (IMUG) and the AE-List - totally independent, non profit and volunteer organizations. AJA Video Systems returned as our Platinum sponsor for 2013 and gave away just a few of many prizes on the night.

Bring your MMB ticket or Photo ID and present yourself to our friendly all-volunteer door staff.
They will check you off the list and give you a name tag and a prize entry form. Based on last year we had no tickets available for sale at the door.
Fill in the Prize entry form and drop it into the ticket into the prize barrel near the bar.
You must be present to win.
On the Prize form you will have the option to 'opt in' for some of our sponsors to send
you their information. Please check this box. Our sponsors make the MMB possible by funding the difference between the price for tickets and the actual cost to put on the MMB and it's a little something we can give back as thanks. Plus you can unsubscribe from their emails at any time.
If for some reason you cannot make it to the MMB please give your ticket to someone else and contact us (below) to have the name changed.
What happens at the MMB?
Relaxed sit down dinner, wine, cash bar,
many prizes, live music and great dessert. Plus a bunch of super creative people to talk to.
Our sponsors will also have tables where you can ask about their products. Please visit them and say hi. They make the MMB possible!
Look over the prize table and drool over what you might win. Remember, the MMB is a winners choice prize system. If your name is drawn YOU get to choose your prize from those remaining on the prize table.
