The NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show, the world’s largest electronic media show, conference and expo for film professionals who create, manage and distribute entertainment across all platforms, takes place April 10 – 15, 2010 in Las Vegas (exhibits open April 12).
This week it was announced that Stan Lee, the iconic co-creator of Spider-Man, X-Men and The Incredible Hulk, will appear at this year’s event.
“A key theme of this year’s NAB Show is transmedia: developing, integrating and monetizing content for multiplatform distribution,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president, conventions & business operations for NAB Show. “Stan Lee has epitomized the concept of transmedia with his amazing creations, which have been turned into smash hit feature films, television series and innovative digital content.”
Stan Lee is the Founder of POW! Entertainment and has served as its Chairman and Chief Creative Officer since inception. But he is best known as the man whose super heroes propelled Marvel to its preeminent position in the comic book industry.
Lee’s co-creations include Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange. Now the Chairman Emeritus of Marvel Media, Lee creates new intellectual property for POW!, which has been in operation since 2001.
One response to “NAB Show Comes to Las Vegas”
I’m surprised the downturn in the economy hasn’t done even more to hurt the Vegas casinos. I guess the neon light will continue to draw people in.
