Due to the renewed challenges the pandemic, the 2021 NAB Show was canceled. While it’s frustrating for many to not get a chance to network and learn, it actually has turned into a bigger opportunity for many.

Photofocus publisher Rich Harrington is also the program manager for the NAB Post|Production World Conference, and he’s joined by other amazing industry experts. While this event would normally set you back about a thousand dollars, the great team over at Future Media Conferences and NAB have decide the show must go on (and made it free to access).
