Broadcast Tech & Engineering News – NAB Show implements ‘No-Contact’ policy

NAB Show says 85% of its audience is either already vaccinated or intend to be by the time the show comes around in Las Vegas, Oct. 9-13. Among other measures, NAB says the show is enacting a “No-Contact Policy” asking attendees to refrain from greeting one another using any physical contact.
