The 14 UK businesses represent the best of technology from right across the electronic media field.

“There is a huge build-up of excitement around NAB this year, because of course we lost the previous two editions,” said Mark Birchall, managing director of Tradefair. “The British companies on our programme have all been working hard over the past two years finding new ways of working with their customers as well as creating innovative new products. We help them by taking on the administration and practicalities of attending NAB and presenting themselves on the world stage.”
The UK Pavilion at NAB is managed by Tradefair, who provides the practical organisation for the venture, including logistics and managing the pavilion. The result is that the companies in the mission can concentrate on their products and building contacts, without worrying about the practicalities of building a stand.
