NAB Show 2020 PR deadlines

While Mobile World Congress has been canceled after big exhibitors like LG, Ericsson, Sony, Amazon and Intel pulled out over concerns around COVID-19, NAB Show 2020 has declared that the show must go on. According to NAB, no exhibitors have pulled the plug on the 2020 show to date, and it’s expecting to welcome some 1600 exhibitors and 90,000 attendees on 18-22 April.

If you’re a marketing executive scrambling to get everything ready in the final weeks before the show begins, we know how busy you are. And you probably don’t need reminding that the key deadlines for PR opportunities are coming up fast.

To help you get things organized, we’ve put together a handy list of NAB Show editorial and award deadlines, which you can see at the end of this blog.
