1:00 – 2:00 p.m.: Registration

2:00 – 3:00 p.m.: Inside UBS Arena With New York Islanders
After multiple false starts, games played at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and a global pandemic, the completion of UBS Arena has been a long time coming for fans of the four-time Stanley Cup Champion New York Islanders. The seven-year process has resulted in a $1.1 billion venue that boasts high-quality production technology within an IP, HDR-capable control room, numerous LED video displays, and an experience that’s uniquely their own. Members of the Isles’ video production team provide a glimpse at the in-venue equipment, workflows, and technologies while also explaining the creative elements that go into their shows.
