For the sixth consecutive year, students and faculty from the Television & Video Production Program have made their way to the largest broadcast and media trade show in North America – The National Association of Broadcasters Convention (aka NABShow). Students manage all of the fundraising and travel logistics to enable them to attend the event – a real challenge this time around due to the Canadian Dollar exchange rate!
Though the primary focus of the show is technology, with manufacturers from all over the world presenting their latest and greatest broadcast and new-media hardware and software, it’s also a great networking opportunity for students! With over 103,000 attendees from 187 countries at the show, broadcasters from across Canada and around the world are interacting and socializing with BCIT students every day!
While the NAB Show is taking place, BCIT faculty took time to attend the Broadcast Education Association event, meeting with fellow broadcast educators (including Broadcast Educators Association of Canada members) from around the world!
As always, BCIT’s Television students have made a highly-visible, overwhelmingly positive impression on show attendees and exhibitors this year, and this participation has been warmly welcomed by Canadian broadcasters and media representatives. Students taking part in these events are a strong reminder of BCIT’s ongoing commitment to providing opportunities for BC students to obtain a world-class broadcast education!
Every April in Las Vegas, broadcasters from all over the world take part in the largest broadcast and media trade show in North America – The National Association of Broadcasters Convention (aka NABShow). This year, 27 of our BCIT Broadcast Television students organized funding, transport, and accommodations to be able to attend the event.
Although the primary focus of the show is a trades and technology show where manufacturers from all over the world present their latest and greatest broadcast and media hardware and software, it’s also an amazing networking opportunity for the students, with 100,000 attendees from over 156 countries!
