Attendees talk about the MediaMotion Ball - IMUG MediaMotion on Vimeo.

Everyone is welcome. We have attendees from many email groups, twitter groups and online forums.The IMUG and After Effects email lists form the basis of the MediaMotion Ball. We also have attendees who use FCP, Avid, Cinema4D, Resolve and Premiere Pro from around the world. The event is not a 'Ball' in the traditional sense - so no dancing or formal attire required. Everyone can come as they are!

The night always features our famous prize draw. 2018 will be the 21st anniversary of the MediaMotion Events at NAB and is held at the Monte Carlo. The MMB is unique in the NAB landscape - a non-profit event for users, by users and entirely volunteer created and run.

What do you get for your ticket?

Advance ticket purchase includes a fantastic sit down and relaxed dinner, wine and entry into the prize draw. There is also a cash bar. You'll join your peers for a night of socializing and fun and you might just leave with a great prize. Doors open at the Monte Carlo from 5:30pm and the night proper starts at around 6:50pm. Food is served from around 7:15pm. Throughout the night we draw from the sizable prize pool. Ultimately the MMB is about giving everyone the rare chance to meet and mix in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The MMB is run as a non-profit event and everyone involved is an unpaid volunteer. It's our way of giving something back to the online communities around the world that help us all everyday in our professional lives. Of course none of this would be possible without the support of our sponsors. Their generosity has contributed to making the MMB one of the longest running events at NAB. Without them we would not be here so please send your business their way.

We hope to see you this year for a wonderful night!
