We have an increasing number of buyers from overseas ready to meet with our international exhibitors and distributors. Our goal for 2017 is to create a unique experience for our members and attendees and offer them all of the elements that will enrich their businesses and professional careers. If a person is associated with content in any form across any platform NATPE is the place to be.”
Next year’s installment of the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards will be hosted by Natalie Morales, the West Coast anchor of NBC News’ Today and co-host of Access Hollywood and Access Hollywood Live.
