Agree w/Michael, I don't think one day will allow you to accomplish much. If all you want to do is walk in and be overwhelmed, then one day will suffice, but if you want to actually get some benefit out of the experience, then you'll need three days. Two days at the very least, if you're focused and you know exactly which booths you want to visit and where they are, and you don't allow yourself to get sidetracked by cool stuff you weren't expecting to walk past (my big problem). Some folks go the whole four days.

This ain't DV Expo, which you can do in a single day (as I did, last Dec. for the West coast show). NAB fills the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, including both levels of the new South Hall. Just to go up and down all the aisles and still absorb a presentation once in awhile, you could easily go all four days:

Day One: North Hall, Audio Exhibits
Day Two: Central Hall, Video & Film
Day Three: South Hall, Upper: Video & Film
Day Four: South Hall, Lower: Post Production

I'm limiting myself to three days, so I'm going to try to jam the North and Central Halls into a single day, which will be a bit of a challenge. And Michael's right, comfortable shows are a MUST, as you're going to be on your feet the whole time walking the quivalent of a few miles per day. NAB is great excersize!

(Greg, I haven't forgotten about ya)

Chris, are you going to be spending time manning the Canon booth, as in years past?

Nope! I'll be roaming the aisles. This show is far too important to spend it stuck behind a counter!

NAB 2005 Las Vegas

Hello Folks,
I was thinking about attending the NAB conference for the first time this year in Las Vegas. Looking at the show web site is pretty overwhelming...lots of stuff to do. I am new to digital media but am producing ( filming/editing) a regular TV show that is broadcast locally on cable leased access.I was hoping someone in this group may have some good ideas on how to save money and go to this convention on a budget. My areas of interest are:
FCP education
future trends in Digital media delivery
Digital media in retail enviroments/ new media ...Touchscreen/ projection
How to sell broadcast TV show ideas and production to networks.
If anyone has some good money saving ideas or ways someone new to digital media can get the most for the money out of NAB 2005 this help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Brian

If I'm still in Vegas when NAB rolls around (I'm heading down tomorrow) can someone come post bail for me?
Thanks.

Let's see... you would have been in the cooler for a little over a month by that time... sure, I'd bail you out, but not until April 23rd.

Faces with names - NAB 2005

I've got my plane ticket - I sure do what to meet some of the people on here. It would be nice to put faces with the names!

For the first time ever I would like to attend NAB, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Do you just buy a general admission ticket? (about how much)and then separate ones for the conferences? What do you guys recomend?. I pretty much want to see everything.

I'll be there, at the Promax event, LAFCPUG event and just wandering around. Also, Joe Maller has a panel on Filters for FCP he's invited me onto, so if anyone's interested, I'll see you then.

Graeme, hope to catch you at the LAFCPUG deal, Horton has threatened me with taking tickets, so if I'm not up by the front desk doing that, then you'll find me hanging out close to the bar.

Chris, it would be most excellent to meet you. I'll be the guy with the baby daughter in his arms.

Well, how will the rest of us know who's who, besides Greame, at NAB? I say we all wear DVInfo sombrero hats!

(sorry if spelling on sombrero is incorrect)

Its easy to find all of us. Graeme will have the baby in his arms, Chris H will be under a table in the lobby of the Stardust and I'll be under the table next to him.

...and Wilt and Hodgetts will be laughing their heads off. Yes, it's always easy to tell who's who at any LAFCPUG event!

Seriously though, cool people like Michael and myself will be wearing our NAB badges, so look for the name tags. Sounds geeky but that's how you let people know who you are. Unless you're Big Dan Berube, the man who needs no name tag. Everybody knows who he is already.
