Each year, a number of opportunities exist for members of the Society of Broadcast Engineers, as well as manufacturers of broadcast equipment, to participate in regional SBE conventions and conferences. Each with their own unique characteristics, these events typically offer broadcast engineers the opportunity to attend educational sessions, see the latest equipment and supplies and meet with peers. Most are offered at little or no cost. For manufacturers, it affords the opportunity to exhibit economically in front of a targeted audience. You can establish new customer contacts while maintaining current client relationships. Below are a list of SBE-affiliated conferences and events.
