NAB information and other events

The MediaMotion Ball is not the only event at NAB. We add events as we find out about them. If you are looking for accommodation at NAB the best deals can be found through NAB Hotel reservations here. Rates increase the closer we get to NAB but we find that they generally have the best prices and selection of hotels.

Las Vegas Weather: Warm to hot days. Bring a jacket for the chilly & sometimes windy evenings. First time to NAB or want some hints to get the best from your stay - check out Michele Yamazaki's from Toolfarm (great supporter of the MMB) NAB Survival Guide - very useful info and links:

Follow @careyd on Twitter to keep up to date on various happenings. You can also follow @imug, which doesn't generate as much traffic.

Below we have the key events during NAB that the IMUG team love to attend. There are other events of course and Broadcast Beat keep a good list of all the after show happenings. Follow this link.

SUNDAY NIGHT - April 7, 2019

The Colorist Mixer - is back! Doors open at 7pm at Virgil's Real Barbeque, The LINQ Promenade. Tickets have sold out but you can go on the waitlist.

The Colorist Mixer is an industry greet & meet. Colorists, editors, DPs, Directors and DITs (and their assistants) are all welcome for an evening of great conversation, food and drink. Oh and they have amazing prizes too.

The Colorist Mixer is a great way to start your NAB week in a relaxed and friendly environment. This is an event you don't want to miss, great atmosphere and a wonderful bunch of creative people. Lots of fun. The MMB team attend every year without fail!

Join Andrew Kramer, Lloyd Alvarez, Nick Campbell, Hayley Akins, Joey Korenman as well as hundreds of other like-minded motion designers and animators.  

Space and drinks are limited, so be sure to RSVP in advance. Drink tickets are first-come-first-serve, so don't miss out!

This is another event we at the MMB never miss. Mixing with the who's who of the motion graphics industry, having a drink and a bite. What more could you want.

Returning again for its fourth straight year, come hang out with Blue Collar Post Collective at NAB the night before the show opens! This is a great opportunity for those who aren't in places where there are normally on-the-ground meet-ups to come together and experience post production hang-outs the BCPC way. We'll also be welcoming ten new PDAP recipients!

Everyone in all areas of post production at all experience levels is welcome and encouraged! We try to be non-intimidating, low stress, high nerd.

BCPC is planning to meet in the same spot as last year - in front of O'Sheas Casino - on the Linq just outside the Flamingo. There's a bit of random seating outside and a couple of bars within a good proximity. We'd love recommendations for better spots though -- we're growing out of this space year after year. Check here at the BCPC Facebook page for more details:

MediaMotion Ball of course! From 5:30pm - 9:45pm (dinner is at 7pm).

TUESDAY - April 9

Faster Together - is on stage at the Rio on the Tuesday night at NAB. For more details:

MoBeer 2019 Wednesday night at NAB

Join your fellow #NABShow mographers after MoKart for a few late-night brews on Fremont Street.

Same agenda as last year: meet at Banger Brewing around 10-11pm, or as soon as we can hustle over from MoKart. After Banger kicks us out, walk down Fremont Street to the Triple 7 Brewery at Main Street Station.

This is a do-it-yourself-with-friends brewery adventure. You must be 21 years or older and are responsible for your own purchases and transportation. The point is to enjoy beer and each other's company.

The organizer is Tim Kurkoski, Product Owner for Adobe After Effects and BJCP Certified beer judge. He likes visiting breweries and drinking beer in the company of good people. That means you!

On the night, if you want to contact Tim, Twitter @tkurkoski is far more likely to get through.

THURSDAY - April 12 - Beerhaus

People get there about 4:30-7pm.

After the show closes we meet up with anyone still in Vegas and often waiting to catch their plane. An informal gathering and goodbyes with new and old NAB friends.

Held at Beerhaus - 3784 South Las Vegas Boulevard located between 'New York, New York' and 'Park MGM' (fomerly Monte Carlo). Same location at the Mograph Meetup.


There are always lots of sponsored parties and get togethers during NAB. Many are kept under wraps until the NAB week. Some are invite only. Keep an ear open for any inside knowledge while you are on the NAB show floor.
