The NRB International Christian Media Convention (May 22-25, 2023, in Orlando, Florida) provides one-of-a-kind opportunities for Christian media professionals to showcase and pitch their media projects directly to major distributors and directors at the NRB Pitch-a-thon and TV Showcase.
Through several dedicated events, you will have the opportunity to refine your pitch, form key connections with decision-makers in your field, and potentially secure distribution deals, opening new avenues for your work.
If you are a television producer seeking to promote your programs, the NRB 2023 TV Showcase (Monday, May 22, from 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.) is for you. There, you can present your programs to a wide range of network program directors and station managers.
“The Showcase is an excellent opportunity for producers to show off their programs, especially if they are trying to be noticed by network programmers,” said Lee Miller, a member of NRB’s Television Committee. “Some of the best programs on Christian TV got their start by entering the showcase. We have agreements that TV network program directors will be in attendance.”
