Cyn’s Notes from NATPE 2012  Miami: 

Two particular topics finding their way into the conversations at this year’s NATPE.  First, it’s the amount of people who are here this year who have not been to NATPE in many years. Many I’ve spoken with haven’t been here for 4 or 5 years; and I overheard one gentlemen say he hadn’t been here in 17. 

And someone else pointed out that the opening night gathering around the Bleu Bar in the main lobby of the Fontainebleau looked for all the world like a Who’s Who of the Television Industry.   That’s exciting to see people returning to a convention, and a salute to the organizers. So kudos to Rick and his team.  

The other topic that seems to be in every discussion is digital.  While the why’s and wherefore’s continue to be a discussion point, but that this topic has reached “must be considered” status in every deal, is a new benchmark. The questions being asked about digital include how to facilitate social media; where will this take us next; the field is moving so fast  how do we keep up and continue to be relevant; how to discern what the next big thing will be; and of course, how to monetize the efforts. 

And in case you are wondering, I’m happy to report no wardrobe malfunctions today, and thanks to everyone who chimed in with helpful hints.   Who needs Heloise!?!
