09 de enero de 2022

After serious consideration of the health and safety of all attendees, as well as the quality of the event experience for its membership and other constituents, NATPE Miami 2022 has canceled the in-person Conference and Marketplace planned from January 18-20 this month in Miami, Florida with new dates and locations under consideration for the next NATPE Conference and Marketplace. The decision was announced Saturday January 8th by JP Bommel, president and CEO of the National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE), the premier global business association for content producers, distributors, streamers and buyers across all platforms.

NATPE is in the process of developing a plan to create both virtual and in-person events (when appropriate) throughout the year with either no fees or limited ones in appreciation for the support NATPE has received from many people around the world.

Bommel remarked, “Although this decision from a financial point of view will cost the organization a great deal of money, that was secondary to our primary concern, which is to put the welfare of our members first. We put a great deal of safety protocols in place, but it is just not enough given the intensity of this virus which is spreading at an enormous rate all over the world. We look forward to producing a strong conference at the right time and under the best circumstances, and to provide all our attendees with the greatest value we can offer.”
