2021 SVG Chairman’s Forum

The 2021 SVG Chairman’s Forum@NAB signals a welcome return to normalcy after 18 months of virtual events. Our goal with the Chairman’s Forum will be to provide a chance for attendees to reset in three ways:

  • By providing informative and off-the-record panel discussions and presentations that will bring everyone up to date on where the industry stands in a post-pandemic landscape.
  • By providing plenty of networking time so that guests can reconnect.
  • By timing our event with NAB so that our members and sponsors can make the most of their time in Las Vegas.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is open to qualified professionals, SVG Platinum Sponsors, SVG Mobile/Integrator Sponsors, and SVG Sponsors that support the Chairman’s Forum (by invitation only).

For more information about attending the Forum, please apply to Andrew Lippe at [email protected].

* SVG will follow health and safety protocols as outlined by the CDC and local officials at our events. As information around the virus continues to develop, SVG will adjust its approach as needed. *
