The 2020 NAB show is not canceled… yet (COVID-19)


A few companies, including Nikon and Adobe, already announced their withdraws from the 2020 NAB show due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). As of today, the 2020 NAB show is still happening, but I believe this will change very soon. From NAB’s website:

NAB Show Status

The health and safety of our show community remains our top priority. As of now, we are moving forward with NAB Show, while continuing to evaluate the national and international situation carefully.

In light of confirmed cases of COVID-19 coronavirus in Nevada, we have reached out to local public health officials, the convention center, and other partners on the ground to assess the situation and determine their increased protocols for the health and safety of Show guests. As we receive additional details, we will update this website and communicate with all our guests and partners.

Changes to The Show

As of now, we are moving forward responsibly with NAB Show. We continue to take our direction from global, federal, and local health officials, like the WHO and CDC, which do not have travel notices or restrictions on public gatherings for the continental US.

We understand there are exhibitors and participants that may decide not to attend this year’s show and respect everyone’s desire to do what they believe is best. Over the last several weeks, we’ve heard from many exhibitors and attendees who are excited about driving our industry and their businesses forward, and we are striving to put on a show that will provide them this platform, while being mindful of the ongoing concerns regarding coronavirus. In fact, about 96% of our exhibitors are still planning to attend and of the 4% that are no longer attending, more than 80% are from China and unable to attend due to travel restrictions.

We share in the disappointment of show community members who are affected by travel restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19) and cannot join us in person this year. We are in contact with the exhibitors and attendees who are impacted by travel restrictions and working with them on options so they can, where possible, experience some of the benefits of the show and add value to in-person attendees remotely.
