LAS VEGAS — NAB Show (www.nabshow.com) and Women in Film & Video (WIFV.org) will co-host the third annual #GalsNGear event at the 2018 NAB Show this April. The event is designed to enable networking and provide visibility and training for women in technology and content creation. The #GalsNGear event will be held in the Central Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center on Tuesday, April 10th at 8:30am.
The event will be followed by panel discussions and equipment demonstrations broadcast on “NAB Show Live,” focusing on innovative trends and tools in media and technology. Influential women from across the spectrum of technical jobs in production and post from Netflix, AR Wall, Sim, Digital Anarchy and other media companies will share their insights on artificial intelligence, unmanned aerial vehicles, virtual reality, post workflows and other topics. During the broadcast, there will be more than $10,000 in #GNGiveaways, including some of the latest cameras, lighting, sound design tools, VR viewers and editing software.
“We love the energy at our NAB Show #GalsNGear event,” says #GalsNGear founder and co-host Amy DeLouise. “The crowd gets an inside look at the latest tools in action, like FoxFury Lighting’s drone-mount lights, Adobe’s new Sensei technology, and Blackmagic’s URSA Mini Pro 4.6k EF camera.”
“The #GalsNGear event is an excellent opportunity for leading professionals to expand their network, gain valuable skills and increase their visibility,” adds NAB executive vice president of conventions and business operations, Chris Brown. “We look forward to providing a platform for WIFV and #GalsNGear to once again empower and educate women in the fields of media, entertainment and technology.”
Other #GalsNGear events include two sessions on the Post|Production Campus: “The Science of Sizzle: Social Video, Promos and Demo Reels” and “Community Mixer: Speed Networking.”
