"Combining the NAB Show with the Post|Production World is a great value, making it a no brainer from a cost point of view to go to NAB Show. I have found that many of the speakers are not only experts from the industry, but also outstanding presenters. What I enjoy is that many of the sessions get very specific and granular, while others are much more broad and conceptual so you can pick and choose depending on your needs."
