We'd love to have you! The IMUG Media Motion Ball (MMB) represents an exciting opportunity for any vendor with products or services addressing the digital media production industry.

Why Sponsor the MediaMotion Ball? from IMUG MediaMotion on Vimeo.

We are a not for profit event and rely on our sponsors for support in helping us cover the costs of this event. Most sponsors have been with us for years and others for the entire existence of the MMB. Sponsors also have the opportunity to give away their products and services in our famous MMB prize draw. The MMB offers a rifle-shot marketing opportunity of incredible precision and value. We have an all volunteer team that puts the MMB on each year. Information about the IMUG and the all volunteer team is here.The MMB is not a 'Ball' in the traditional sense - so no dancing or formal attire required!

The International Media Users Group was founded in 1998. It is community of digital media production professionals that is sustained online by our listservs and by face to face interaction at major industry events such as NAB. We are the producers of the Media Motion Ball, the longest running major user event at NAB. We are entirely volunteer and do this as a labor of love to give back to the media production industry.

We recognize that it is creative, talented people - not technology - that propels our industry forward. We exist to foster relationships between professionals in the media production space.
