The National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) decided to push back its 2004 annual Conference and Exhibition one week to January 18-20, 2004, at the adjoined Venetian Hotel and Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, according to Rick Feldman, NATPE president/ceo. The decision to change the event's dates and shorten its length by one day was made after the association determined that the requirements it held for hotel facilities and exhibition floor space for the original dates of January 13-16 could not be fulfilled.
Feldman added, "Rather than make a significant change from our January 2004 conference next year, we elected to make this slight change of date. The only major accommodation NATPE needed to accept was shortening the conference by one day, which we feel is a worthy compromise. This will allow us to develop a highly-focused agenda of events in one centralized location, while also presenting minimal logistical challenges to people coming to Las Vegas."
