Many annual NAB Shows have become milestones in TV broadcasting history. The presence of the 2022 NAB Show marked the first Las Vegas NAB Show since 2019.
People visit NAB Shows for many reasons. Some are there to investigate and examine new solutions. Some are shopping with a budget ready to spend.
