NAB follows CES in requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccination

The NAB Show will require proof of Covid-19 vaccination in order to attend.

The show, scheduled to take place in October in Las Vegas, will require all attendees and participants to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination while also participating in other safety measures. 

In a statement, the organisers of the event said: “With less than 60 days until the start of NAB Show and associated co-located events scheduled for October in Las Vegas, we are filled with excitement and anticipation to welcome you to what promises to be the ultimate reunion at which to get back to business, reconnect and reinvigorate the industry.

While the enthusiasm is building, we are keenly aware of health and safety concerns tied to the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant and want to assure you that we are putting in place a comprehensive, data-driven plan that prioritizes safety and creates a productive environment at these events.”

The announcement follows news that the CTA will also require proof of vaccination for attendance to January’s Consumer Electronic Show.

Meanwhile, the broadcasting industry’s leading European event IBC will go ahead in December with strict Covid-19 measures in place, but is yet to confirm whether vaccination will be required. The organisers have said that 96% of the respondents to its attendee survey said they will be fully vaccinated by December. DTVE has reached out to IBC for comment.
