MUMBAI: The first NYC Television Week, presented by Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, Next TV, and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), drew more than 1500 television industry executives to the Waldorf Astoria and the Metropolitan Pavilion from 28-30 October. Sony was the Founding Sponsor.

NYC Television Week comprised conferences, events, and an exhibition - including the “State of Television,” Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame, the two-day “TV Summit,” “TV on Wall Street,” and the Solutions Center exhibit floor, presented by NAB Show - bringing them to the heart of Manhattan.

NYC Television Week’s conferences featured 87 industry leaders as keynotes and presenters, including DirecTV president, chairman and CEO Mike White; National Basketball Association commissioner David J. Stern; WWE executive VP - creative Stephanie McMahon and Twitter chief media scientist Deb Roy, to name a few.

“The incredible line-up of speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors is a good indication of how the television industry needed a place to get together after the start of the fall season to discuss the status quo and the direction in which we are headed,” stated Broadcasting and Cable and Multichannel News EVP/group publisher Louis Hillelson, “I am happy that we and NAB were able to provide the platform for these high-level discussions.”

“Given the transformative state of the industry, NYC Television Week could not have been more timely and relevant, providing valuable takeaways for attendees,” said NAB executive VP conventions and business operations Chris Brown. “We had a very strong ‘TV on Wall Street’ program that was an immediate hit, and the Solutions Center featured a provocative mix of innovative products and services for the industry. We look forward to building on this event going forward as we continue to extend the NAB and NAB Show brands.”

NYC Television Week opened Monday morning, 28 October, at the Waldorf Astoria with the “State of Television” conference, and featured in-depth discussions about various areas of the television industry, including cable, sports, advertising, and new technologies. This was the 23rd annual Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, hosted by CBS News correspondent 60 Minutes Lesley Stahl and NBC News special correspondent and host of The Meredith Vieira Show Meredith Vieira.

On Tuesday, 29 October, NYC Television Week took over the Metropolitan Pavilion with “TV Summit Day 1,” “TV on Wall Street,” and the Solutions Center exhibition. “TV Summit Day 1” covered a wide range of topics, such as indie production, syndication in the digital age, showrunning, and the state of network television. “TV on Wall Street” examined how content competition and consumer consumption trends are driving the evolution of television and featured chief executives, venture capitalists, and leading financial analysts sharing their views of the TV industry. The summit concluded with a cocktail reception sponsored by National Geographic Channels.

NYC Television Week wrapped up on Wednesday, 30 October, with a second day of both “TV Summit” and the Solutions Center exhibit floor. “TV Summit Day 2” featured discussions on ad buying, 4K, new platforms, and content distribution.

Solutions Center exhibitors included Sony, placemedia, Dolby Laboratories, and Verizon Digital Media Services, among many others. Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, and Next TVare all published by NewBay Media.
