Do you have a good broadcast profession idea? Have you thought long and hard about a topic near and dear to the broadcast heart? Can you see the broadcast future? Or do you have a preference how the broadcast future should be?
Any of these could qualify you to be a speaker at the 2011 NAB Show. Or perhaps you want to suggest a topic to be discussed.
NAB wants to hear from you. Next year's big show in Las Vegas, April 9–14, is being planned. Believe it or not those papers and sessions don't come from the ether or spitball sessions at NAB HQ (not all of them, at any rate); they are submitted by members of the profession.
The NAB is interested in hearing proposals on technical papers, conference topics and even ideas for its Military and Government Summit.
Here's a useful excerpt from the NAB press release:
"Technology, broadcast and media executives are invited to submit a conference proposal covering topics related to technologies for media and entertainment, broadcast management, the business of media, or content creation, distribution and commerce. NAB Show attendees are looking for speakers to draw on their expertise and share their insights on current and future trends in the media and content communities, as well as examine the impact of new technologies on existing business models."
