Just before NAB April 6-8th at the Wynn Las Vegas is Avid Connect. If you are in video editing, post production, music creation, live production or any other kind of video / audio content creation this is the place to be.
Be there when Avid announces the new products, features and releases for NAB and coming year. Avid will also be sharing some of their strategic plans and insight into where they see the industry going. They'll also review the results of 1st ACA vote last year and reveal some of the results of the Second Annual ACA Vote taking place now.
The sessions are fantastic and very informative. Learn from the Avid product team, world class content creators from some of the biggest names in the industry and listen to industry trends from the many panel discussions.
Most of all NETWORK! Meet and mingle with fellow content creators, Avid folks, resellers (like us) and big wigs form network TV and Hollywood.
I'll see you at #AvidConnect !
Avid Connect — The Ultimate Avid User’s Group
Everyone knows about NAB. Some people know about Avid Connect, but it’s surprising how often I speak with people in our industry who don’t grasp that they’re part of the same business trip. Or even if they do, they just don’t consider Avid Connect to be a “thing”.
I’m not here to give you a sales pitch. I just want you to understand what happens at Avid Connect from the point of view of a simple craft editor.

Sure, you can glimpse their new products and chat with third-party vendors, but many editors, sound designers and engineers say “Why bother when I can see all that for free on websites?” Many others don’t see the urgency because purchasing new hardware isn’t in their budget this year.
That’s fine, I understand. But that’s not why I go, here’s why I go: read more...
A Rookie’s Experience of Avid Connect
Hello. My name is Noah Kovalick and I’m a senior Film Production student with an emphasis in audio at Chapman University, Dodge College in sunny Orange, CA. I heard about Avid Connect while volunteering at the 2017 NAMM Show in Anaheim. During that show, I had the opportunity to meet many talented individuals who were at the top of their game. This was my first experience working with, and networking with established industry professionals and it was both educational and rewarding. I also had the chance to re-connect with some friends from high school who are aspiring recording artists.
