The MediaMotion Ball is the longest running all volunteer and not for profit event for production professionals each year at NAB. First held in 1998, the MMB has grown to be the one dinner you 'need' and 'want' to be at during NAB.

Last years MediaMotion Ball was our biggest ever (over 400 people).The industry's finest gathered at a relaxed event that provided the opportunity you time to meet and talk with the 'who's who' of the video production, motion graphics, colorist and 3D fields.
