News: Footage.net to Spotlight Stock Footage Partners at NAB 2016
A diverse group of leading footage companies is set to take part in Footage.net's 2016 NAB exhibition, offering NAB attendees a dynamic introduction to the world-class footage resources available for search and screening through Footage.net, the world's premier online resource for stock footage search and discovery.
(New York, NY--March 1, 2016) Footage.net will feature a prestigious group of footage providers as part of its 2016 NAB exhibition, set to take place on April 18-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. With the NAB Show forecasted to draw large numbers, and Footage.net moving to a central position on the show floor, traffic is expected to be strong.
"Introducing attendees to the world-class footage companies available through Footage.net is always a top priority for us at NAB," said David Seevers, Footage.net CMO. "So our partner companies will be front and center at our NAB booth."
Footage.net partner companies set to participate include: ABCNEWS VideoSource, AP Archive, Bridgeman Footage, FootageBank, Framepool, Global ImageWorks, INA, Producers Library and Reelin' in the Years Productions. These companies represent the key footage categories available for search and screening through Footage.net, including television news, premium stock footage, arts & entertainment, archival footage and historic music performance.
As one of the world's largest production shows, NAB brings together a huge number of production professionals, the vast majority of which are there to learn about production resources and make purchase plans and decisions. Of the 103,119 attendees at last years NAB Show, 69,325 were listed as buyers, of which 8.4% identified stock footage as a primary interest -- meaning 5,823 attendees expressed an interest in stock footage. Similar numbers are expected this year.
"Based on the huge turnout and the great demographic mix, NAB has historically been a very good show for us," said David Seevers. "And we got very lucky with our booth position this year, which makes a huge difference. We have a corner spot at a high-traffic intersection at the end of a long, central corridor, providing an unobstructed line of sight from quite a distance. Being the right spot makes a huge difference at NAB so we are really looking forward to a great show."
NAB attendees will be able to demo Footage.net's search engine, view partner samples and delve into the ins and outs of particular collections. Anyone with particular footage needs can be matched up on the spot with specific footage or an individual provider. Please stop by the Footage.net booth for more information (Booth #SL 14,811).
