NABiQ Elevates Innovation and Collaboration in New, Online Brainstorm
- 22 January, 2024
Purposeful networking returns to the 2024 NAB Show with an expanded series.
USA: NABiQ, the dynamic innovation sprint and creative networking event, is set to make a triumphant return for its third consecutive year promising an enhanced experience for industry professionals at the upcoming 2024 NAB Show, taking place April 13-17 (Exhibits April 14-17) at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Due to its in-person popularity among participants, NABiQ is expanding to include virtual challenges leading up to the Show.
NABiQ stands out as an unparalleled education and networking opportunity to collaborate, share ideas and overcome industry challenges. Structured like a hackathon, participants will form small groups, tackling specific challenges and presenting their innovative solutions for challenges around the three show pillars Create, Connect and Capitalize.
This year, NABiQ is breaking new ground by introducing live challenges on the online community platform, NAB Amplify, before the main event. The digital, three-part series of Deep Dives topics revolve around the future of AI including content creation, content delivery and audience engagement and interaction.
The first free live workshop is on January 25 at 1 p.m. (EST) for the Create community. Program coordinator Maria Duloquin, an innovation consultant, certified Design Sprint Master and startup coach will facilitate the event joined by special guest, NAB Amplify Senior Editor Emily Reigart, for a brief discussion on unlocking the potential of Generative AI. Industry professionals will then break into small groups and discuss pressing questions: What do we understand about AI in the industry so far? What don't we understand about AI in the industry? How do we embrace the future of AI in the industry?
The in-person brainstorm series at NAB Show, scheduled for April 14-16, brings together media professionals for 12 brainstorming sessions that culminate in a daily, one-minute pitch, presented live on stage followed by a happy hour reception for additional networking.
“Our community thrives on passion, creativity and collaboration,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president and managing director of NAB’s Global Connections and Events. “Within this dynamic framework, purposeful networking unlocks innovative thinking and creates an experience that is both more
meaningful and helps to create deeper connections.”
