NAB information and other events

The MediaMotion Ball is not the only event at NAB. We add events as we find out about them. If you are looking for accommodation at NAB the best deals can be found through NAB Hotel reservations here. Rates increase the closer we get to NAB but we find that they generally have the best prices and selection of hotels.

Las Vegas Weather: Warm to hot days. Bring a jacket for the chilly & sometimes windy evenings. First time to NAB or want some hints to get the best from your stay - check out Michele Yamazaki's from Toolfarm (great supporter of the MMB) NAB Survival Guide - very useful info and links:

Follow @careyd on Twitter to keep up to date on various happenings. You can also follow @imug, which doesn't generate as much traffic.

Below we have the key events during NAB that the IMUG team love to attend. There are other events of course and Broadcast Beat keep a good list of all the after show happenings. Follow this link.

SUNDAY NIGHT - April 8, 2018

The Colorist Mixer - is back! Doors open at 7pm at Virgil's Real Barbeque, The LINQ Promenade. Tickets are just $15 but get in quick they sell out fast.

The Colorist Mixer is an industry greet & meet. Colorists, editors, DPs, Directors and DITs (and their assistants) are all welcome for an evening of great conversation, food and drink.

The Colorist Mixer is a great way to start your NAB week in a relaxed and friendly environment. Some of the MMB team will be there and quite a few people that attend the MMB also go to Colorist Mixer. It's a great night and highly recommended by the MMB. See you there.
