NAB Show 2021 After Parties & Events


NAB Show 2021 Canceled

We're really sad about this, but NAB Show 2021 has been officially canceled. We hope to see everyone next year!

NAB Amplify - virtual eventCancellation Announcement

The NAB show in Las Vegas was originally scheduled for April 2020, but got canceled because of the Covid 19 pandemic. Then, what was supposed to take place in April 2021 was pushed back to October. That means when NAB takes place this year, it will have been 2 1/2 years since the last NAB in 2019. So…we’re pretty excited about it!

If you’ve been to NAB, you know that it’s not really complete without some NAB Show after parties and networking events. I mean, how often does the entire industry all get together in one city? Don’t get us wrong…we love looking at all the gear and tech, but it’s a (normally) once a year event where we get to catch up with people, make new friends, and talk about stuff that our friends and spouses probably get sick of hearing about.

So far, not a lot has been announced for NAB Show 2021 after parties and events, but we want this page to be a resource for every one we can find. We’ll update this page as things get announced, so let us know if we’re missing an after party or any other event! Let’s make up for lost time and make this the best NAB yet!

Email if there are any events you don’t see on this list. Make sure to include event name, date & time, details about what it’s for / who’s invited, and a url. We don’t want to miss anything!
