NATPE Miami 2017 is pacing well ahead of last year’s market and conference with a strong representation of international attendees, according to JP Bommel, COO and managing director, NATPE.

Also announced yesterday were a new membership tier, NATPE Next Gen, and the host of the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards, Natalie Morales. The leading global marketplace and resource of television and platform executives will run from Jan. 17-19 at both the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc Miami Beach resorts.

“NATPE Miami 2017 continues to be a must attend event and is the definitive global marketplace for television and platform executives. We have an increasing number of buyers from overseas ready to meet with our international exhibitors and distributors. Our goal for 2017 is to create a unique experience for our members and attendees and offer them all of the elements that will enrich their businesses and professional careers. If a person is associated with content in any form across any platform NATPE is the place to be,” said Bommel.

Next year’s installment of the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards will be hosted by Natalie Morales, the West Coast anchor of NBC News’ Today and co-host of Access Hollywood and Access Hollywood Live. The previously announced Tartikoff Award recipients are Susanne Daniels, Randy Falco, Eva Longoria, Josh Sapan, Dana Walden and Gary Newman.

NATPE Next Gen was created to service industry up-and-comers looking to enhance their burgeoning careers and establish strong relationships for the future. The new organization will operate under the NATPE parent umbrella and provide exclusive access to year-round programming in the form of events, summits, workshops, and screenings. NATPE Next Gen will also have a presence at the yearly NATPE Miami conference in January.

For the first time ever, NATPE Miami will offer a Master Class Series across all tracks featuring top names in the business giving intimate sessions set to empower and inspire conference attendees. Some of the sessions include Emilio Estefan teaching a class on How to Navigate the Music Industry; Steve Levitan, co-creator of Modern Family, instructing conference-goers on Comedy Writing at its Best; and Morgan Wandel, Amazon Studios’ head of Drama Series, leading a session on How to Thrive in the Scripted Market. Additional speakers and keynote sessions will be announced in the coming weeks.
