The New Storytellers Convergence

Riding a river of new technology, the content marketplace of 2020 and beyond is rapidly becoming the biggest game in town…in history. Billions of entertainment-driven consumers are creating an ever-expanding demand for motion pictures, episodic series, live experiences and newly formed celebrity stars on every conceivable platform.

To feed this massive appetite, next-gen stories are coming from content creators who are empowered by the most affordable and brilliant new production tools ever imagined. Combined with new business and revenue models, the 2020 storyteller is collaborating across the ecosystem to collectively build the world’s new media and entertainment industry.

Produced in partnership with The Advanced Imaging Society (AIS), NSPIRE is the new “conference within a conference” at NAB Show. The creative and business convergence for storytellers, NSPIRE has been conceived as a valuable and memorable two-day experience; a “personal and career growth catalyst” for attendees. The sessions, speakers, VIP screenings and receptions are all being planned to leverage the epic creative energy of Las Vegas and NAB Show, while personally connecting you to highly successful leaders, technologies, and professional opportunities you’ll need to succeed.
