SBE President Jerry Massey has announced that the 2016 SBE National Meeting will be held in Columbus, OH, on Oct. 26-27. The venue will be the downtown Greater Columbus Convention Center and the adjacent Columbus Crowne Plaza Hotel. The event is being hosted by the Ohio Association of Broadcasters in conjunction with its annual Ohio Broadcast Engineering Conference. The conference is supported each year by the SBE chapters of Ohio.
The SBE National Meeting includes the SBE Annual Membership Meeting, the SBE National Awards Reception and Dinner and the SBE Fellows Breakfast. The national Board of Directors will also meet during the event, as will the national SBE Certification Committee.
The OAB Broadcast Engineering Conference includes broadcast technical presentations of interest to radio and television engineers planned and organized by an advisory committee of broadcast engineers within the state of Ohio and OAB staff. A trade show of equipment and service suppliers is also a popular part of the OAB Conference.
The downtown Columbus Crowne Plaza Hotel is a 375-room, first-class hotel connected by covered walkway to the convention center. The hotel and convention center have easy access off I-670 and is adjacent to Columbus’ Short North neighborhood of shops, art galleries and restaurants.
All members and friends of the SBE are invited to attend. Members in Ohio or neighboring states are particularly encouraged to attend while the SBE National Meeting is close by. Save the dates: Oct. 26-27 for the 2016 SBE National Meeting and OAB Broadcast Engineering Conference.
