The Realscreen Summit and NATPE are to introduce video conferencing stations at both events this year, in an effort to facilitate business opportunities and communication among attendees despite the conferences overlapping.

Realscreen Summit 2013 is taking place January 27-30 at the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, while NATPE Miami 2013 is slated for January 28-30 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Organizers behind each event say they are doing everything they can to allow buyers and sellers to conduct business at both markets.

“We’re aware that some people have had to split their time between Realscreen Summit and NATPE, or make the difficult choice to attend one conference in favor of the other,” said Claire Macdonald, VPĀ and publisher at realscreen. “We’re hopeful that our collaboration on video conferencing with NATPE will help our delegates connect, regardless of which city they happen to be in.”

“This virtual conference connection adds great value for NATPE and Realscreen Summit attendees, creating an opportunity for them to do business in two places at once,” offered NATPE presidentĀ and CEO Rod Perth. “While we are working closely to avoid future overlaps beyond what’s already locked in, we are committed to providing productive and convenient solutions for attendees to get the most out of their attendance at both events.”
