Web3 is the next iteration of the World Wide Web, a descriptor for its evolving infrastructure which is powered by decentralized networks known as blockchains. Blockchain technology, coupled with artificial intelligence, will power Web3 and create a user base where participants have oversight into the governance and operation of the protocols.

The NAB Show Advisory Council for Web3 will provide advice and expertise on the implications of new technologies, new content models and new consumer behaviors driven by this next generation of the internet. The launch of the council is a strategic decision to serve the NAB Show’s constituents and to help separate industry hype from meaningful economic and creative opportunities.

This advisory group includes 15 leading professionals from key sectors of media and technology.
