Brainstorm cancels its participation at NAB 2021
Brainstorm announces the cancellation of its participation in the upcoming NAB 2021. The Spanish company has been attending NAB for 25 consecutive years, almost since its foundation, which makes this decision all the more difficult to take, and particularly so due to the high hopes Brainstorm had of once again having a physical presence with a booth at NAB and re-engaging in person with stakeholders, partners and clients alike.
Despite delaying the decision in the hope that NAB 2021 would be the opportunity to again meet with customers, partners, providers, and the market in general, the current situation is so uncertain in terms of travel bans, social distancing, and other health and safety measures, that Brainstorm has reluctantly decided to withdraw from the exhibition. For Brainstorm the well-being of its staff, visitors and others involved in the Show is of paramount importance, for which the decision, although extremely difficult, was made with everyone’s health and safety uppermost in mind.
Brainstorm appreciates the enormous efforts that the NAB committee has made to ensure a safe show, however we must face the fact that the situation in the wider world is outside of their control.
According to Ricardo Montesa, CEO and founder of Brainstorm, “It is with great regret that we announce this decision not to attend NAB 2021, but the safety of our staff, customers and partners is the driving force behind it, despite the new features and announcements we had in mind for the Show. Since 1995 we have been exhibiting with great success, and as members of NAB we are very much looking forward to exhibiting at NAB 2022.”
Brainstorm is already beginning to work on its participation at NAB 2022, in the hope that it will represent the return of the shows as we know them.
