The exhibit floor will open on Sunday 19th April and run until Wednesday, April 2020. This year’s schedule is not affected.

The date change is the first modification in the show’s basic weekly structure in years if not decades, and will have impact on both show planners and those who attend.Attendance has been in the range of 90,000 to 100,000 in recent years, and there are many thousands more people who build staff plans, travel costs, meetings, shipping arrangements and other major decisions on assumptions about a basic Monday to Thursday format.

NAB Executive vice president of conventions and business operations Chris Brown said the decision to change the overall schedule was based on feedback from the NAB Show “community at large.”

“As the industry continues to undergo enormous change and disruption, we remain committed to evolving along with it to deliver the best value for exhibitors, attendees and partners,” he stated in an announcement. He said the change provides people an opportunity to attend outside of the work week, and aligns exhibits with the show’s existing education programmes.
