The first day of NATPE in Miami Beach was cool outside, but there was plenty of heat inside – specifically at the expanded Reality conference track at the Eden Roc Hotel.

Tomorrow’s agenda features Keeping up with the KardashiansKris Jenner,The Affair showrunner Sarah Treem, and Chobani Chief Marketing and Brand Officer Peter McGuinness. Stay tuned….
