The SBE @ the 2020 NAB Show


On March 11, the NAB announced that the 2020 NAB Show will not be held in April because of the coronavirus pandemic. With that, the SBE has cancelled all its events originally scheduled in April. As the NAB explores presenting the convention at a later date, the SBE will work with the NAB to possibly reschedule its convention events as well.
