Academy intends to reschedule April event to fall 2020 in New York
NEW YORK — The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) today released the following statement from NATAS President & CEO Adam Sharp:
“Today we made the difficult decision to postpone the 71st Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards dinner in response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
“The event had been scheduled for April 19th in Las Vegas, kicking off the National Association of Broadcasters ‘NAB Show’ for a third year. In consultation with health officials, award recipients, and other prospective attendees, we determined that it was no longer prudent nor viable to move forward with our ceremony. The NAB Show has been a wonderful home for the Tech Emmys, and we intend to reschedule the ceremony to correspond instead with NAB’s fall convention in New York.
“At this moment, we plan to move forward as scheduled with our other upcoming ceremonies: the Sports Emmy® Awards on April 28th in New York, the Daytime Emmy® Awards on June 12-14 in Pasadena, and the News & Documentary Emmy® Awards in September in New York. We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we make determinations around these other events based on day-to-day developments.
“In every case, the health and safety of our event attendees and staff will remain our paramount concern. We are particularly grateful to and proud of the thousands of NATAS members across America’s local newsrooms who are doing the front-line work of informing the public in this time of anxiety, confusion, and ever-changing information.”
