Apple’s return to the NAB Show after a ten-year absence is in doubt, after the show’s website removed the mention of Apple. as one of the companies participating in 2021, after having included it last weekend.
NAB Show is the fair that annually organizes the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas, and is aimed at a professional audience, students of broadcasting, entertainment, news and content distribution.
Last Sunday, the NAB Show website in the 2021 edition to be held in October, included Apple as part of the group of companies that will attend the next edition of this event.
However, in a website update, the National Association of Broadcasters has quietly removed the reference to Apple, keeping the same companies that were on the same list since last Sunday.
At the moment we do not know the reason why Apple has been eliminated from this list, but the possibility that it can still attend this year’s edition is not completely ruled out. It is possible that Apple may appear at the trade show although not necessarily as an important assistant.
If Apple attends the broadcast-focused trade show, it will be Apple’s first official appearance in ten years. His last visit was in April 2011, when he used the FCP User Group SuperMeet to launch 64-bit Final Cut Pro X.
Considering that Apple has gone on to become a streaming video platform, it seems logical that the company returns to the event. The NAB Show 2021 will be held from October 9-13 in Las Vegas.
