SVG Chairman’s Forum 2014


The 2014 Chairman’s Forum is an invitation-only event for the leaders in sports production who will be attending the NAB convention. It is open to SVG Platinum sponsors, mobile/integrator sponsors and SVG sponsors who sponsor an event at the Chairman’s Forum.

As always, the goal of the event is to provide an off-the-record environment via general sessions and workshop tracks that give attendees a jump-start on the new technologies they will see on the NAB exhibition floor. In addition, plenty of networking time allows for new relationships to begin and deals to be struck.
