The NAB show is a four-day event that brings together over 90,000 media and entertainment professionals from over 150 countries to the Las Vegas Convention Center. It is a great opportunity for non-profit organizations to gather and share their ideas of public service to a broad audience. This year TEAM distributed PSA DVDs that included selected PSAs from the NBA, the NHL, the NFL, MLB, and MLS. In addition to those DVDs, TEAM also provided broadcasters with a specially branded “Fans DonÕt Let Fans Drive Drunk” flash drive uploaded with the most current MLB and MLS PSAs.
TEAM Coalition’s materials are also highlighted on the NAB web site highlighting public service called Spot Center.
“The National Association of Broadcasters values its long-standing partnership with TEAM Coalition. Through public awareness materials created by TEAM Coalition, America’s broadcasters are able to help create a safe and family-friendly environment at sporting and entertainment facilities in their local communities.” Said Dennis Wharton, Executive Vice President of the National Association of Broadcasters.
It was a great opportunity for TEAM to network and share ideas with other organizations that are all dedicated to public service. TEAM looks forward to returning to Las Vegas in April of 2012 for the NAB show once again.
