NewBay Media to Launch 'NYC Television Week'Inaugural Event from Publisher of 'MCN,' 'B&C' Set in Manhattan from Oct. 28-31 1/17/2013 6:53 AM Eastern
This fall, NewBay Media will salute the television industry in New York City.
NewBay, the publisher of Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, Next TV and TV Technology, will produce the first of an annual week-long celebration of the television industry called “NYC Television Week.” The inaugural version of the event will take place from Oct. 28 through Oct. 31 at locations throughout Manhattan.
NYC Television Week will cover the breadth of today's TV industry — from broadcast to cable, satellite to internet video, and beyond. The celebration will comprise conferences, award presentations, networking events and seminars orbiting syndication, innovation, advertising, mobile TV, science and technology and creative development that will engage leaders from all corners of the TV business, including industry management, programmers, technologists, engineers and talent, as well as those that want to reach TV advertisers and sponsors.
NYC Television Week programming will be bookended by the annual Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame on Oct. 28 and the OnScreen Summit on Oct. 31
“Television is an incredibly large and dynamic industry, and a huge part of New York City’s culture and economy,” said Steve Palm, CEO, NewBay Media, in announcing the event. “We believe no industry is more deserving of being in the spotlight in NYC than television, and look forward to producing a week-long celebration that rivals Fashion and Advertising Week. NYC Television Week will be a unique opportunity for everyone in the television ecosystem to come together, celebrate, learn and network.”
The kickoff to NYC Television Week will be a networking breakfast the morning of Oct. 28, leading into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame taking place later that evening at the famed Waldorf-Astoria. The following days will be filled with events that will inspire education and thought-leadership from key leaders in the industry, as well as technology exhibits and discussions on content and social media. NYC Television Week concludes on Halloweeen with the OnScreen Summit.
“Quite simply, if you work in television or in an industry affected by it, then you need to be at NYC Television Week,” states Louis Hillelson, vice president/group publisher, Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, and Next TV. “The outcome from these events — the sharing of ideas and solutions — will help shape the industry going forward.”
More details about NYC Television Week will be revealed in the coming months. For sponsorship opportunities or to participate in NYC Television Week, contact Hillelson at 917-281-4730 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
