Statement from Akamai Executive Vice President and GM, Media & Carrier, Adam Karon, on the 2020 NAB Show

Akamai fully supports and appreciates NAB's decision to put off the 2020 NAB Show. We recognize the weight of the decision and subsequent, wide-ranging ramifications that had to be considered.  While we're disappointed to miss this annual opportunity to personally connect with customers, partners and colleagues from around the world, we're grateful that priority was rightly placed upon the health of everyone involved and taking steps to help prevent further spread of COVID-19. 

Despite these developments, Akamai remains excited about our Media business and the host of product innovations, industry research and news that was slated for NAB. To that end, we're working on several approaches to share this information as engaging alternatives to the in-person experience, not the least of which is an online event that we're planning for the week of April 6th. We look forward to communicating more information about this event as we finalize details and gathering as an industry at a later date.
