I've got to bow down in homage to my dear friend Michael Horton - the only guy I've ever known who is smart enough AND lucky enough to schedule an event that consists of 17 miles of walking hallways to get to the ballroom - and just at the right moment, when your "show floor exhausted feet" really can't be convinced to take another step - there ahead like a shimmering desert mirage are the ONLY two words in the english language that could conceivably revive legions of exhausted video makers to press on ... LINGERIE SHOW.

Somebody really should set up a camera right outside that homage to corsets and lace and watch as the videograher's - male and female alike - have their brains suddenly re-wired by passing under archway after archway picturing corsets and cleavage.

You can just hear their brain synapses snapping - trying to figure out how the signage lighting was done and struggling with questions like where the heck to try and hide a wireless transmitter in THAT sort of shot.

Sublime.

Nab

Hello folks,
I have decided to go to NAB this year - I fully do not know what to expect, except that it will be big. For now I'm just doing the exhibitor pass just to see what's out there and to save some money.

For those of you that have been already, do you have any advice for us NAB newbies?

Thanks
Jim

Its not so overwhelming as you might think. Stick to the South Hall if Digital video is what you are into. The other halls have stuff that is more for Broadcast and TV stations and high end audio solutions.

Get a cheap hotel cause all you need is a bed and roof a bathroom. You wont be in the room much so who cares if its got a view. Unless you are with a friend who does care.

Bring business cards and comfortable shoes and socks and breath spray. Socks are more important than shoes for comfort. Its the standing around on concrete that kill your feet, not so much the miles of walking. Just ask the folks who work the booths. Look at their faces at the end of the day. Scary.

Meet people and get out at night. Go to the SuperMeet, Media Motion Ball and Red User Event. Not into those, then ask here for other events you might find interesting. The nighttime events are great places to meet folks.

Hang out at the new Post Pit in the South Hall. Free demos of lots of cool things and lots of very smart people will be hanging around there. Use it as a meet up place.

If you come alone to NAB then it can get lonely and overwhelming. But if you are an out going sort of fellow, who doesn't smell bad, then there will be lots of folks to hook up with.

It's the people you will meet that make it all worth it. So come with a smile and look to have fun. You can read all about the new toys when you get back to the hotel.

Do not under any circumstance wear new shoes - like I did last year! My feet were killing me!!! Old comfortable well broken-in shoes only as you'll probably walk several miles a day. And of course, nice cushy socks! I used to work these kinds of trade shows years ago and I remember one in San Fran that ran from 10 AM to 10 PM. I thought I'd never walk right again after 12 hours

Aside from that they have a service that lets you pick the exhibits you particularly want to see and tells you where they're located and you can check it on your i-phone to use as a guide in getting around. Very nice and I used it a lot last year. I also made approximate "appointments" ahead of time with some of the software guys I really wanted to talk with and that worked out very well for me. Not sure they will all do it, but the guys I really wanted to talk to at least gave me a time range when they would make themselves available for a discussion. I actually managed to get a half-hour hands-on tutorial from one of the outfits but I think this was more luck than anything else.
