Now that NAB has come and gone, there are other in-person events re-emerging after the COVID hiatus. This month we have the Keycode Media POSTNAB show, Koerner Camera’s PNW Lens Summit, and Gearhead’s Mini Gear Expo.
POSTNAB 2022 offers 30 vendors and a selection of speakers covering broadcast and post-production tech. It’s a one-day show and free to attend, though tickets are limited (as I write this, only 79 are left for the Seattle show).
- Seattle: Wednesday, May 4
- Los Angeles: Wednesday, May 11
- Chicago: Tuesday, May 24
- Detroit: Thursday, May 26
PNW Lens Summit
The PNW Lens Summit is a two-day cine glass expo, the first “live” Lens Summit since the 2019 event. The 2017 photo gallery gives you an idea of what to expect. Koerner says:
We will be following CDC and state guidelines. Safety precautions include:
- All attendees and exhibitors will be required to present your COVID-19 vaccination card, or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours, to enter the event.
- Social distancing is encouraged.
Things will look a little different than years past, but that doesn’t mean you should expect anything less than the best!
- Portland, OR: Friday–Saturday May 13 & 14, 10am–5pm
