MediaMotion Ball

The MMB will return. There are plans afoot for 2021. Details next year.

Tickets closed »

It breaks our hearts to do so, but we're having to cancel the MediaMotion Ball this year. It is such a source of joy to us every year to see old friends and make new ones at the MMB. Needless to say, anyone who has bought a ticket already will be getting a refund.

Aside from the obvious reason of wanting to minimize transmission of the COVID-19 virus, we have been facing the financial realities of trying to do our event in an environment where attendee numbers and sponsor support had essentially collapsed. Today’s official announcement that the NAB show has cancelled has finalized our decision, and for the record, we think it was the right call.

You've heard us say it before, but the MMB was created to foster and celebrate our production and post-production community. (Even the word "community" doesn't perfectly describe it-- "family" might be more accurate.) Please know that we wish the best for you and your teams in the coming months, wherever you may find yourselves.
