Host Station October Update
Hi everyone, I’m Maddy your NaSTA Host Officer 2017! I’m an avid member of Guild TV so this year we are holding the National Student Television Association Awards at the University of Birmingham. My team and I have been busy this summer securing our venues and accommodation for you. As with every university, we’ve been busy this fresher’s week trying to gather as many new recruits as possible to make this the best year for Guild TV as it is our 50th anniversary.
The conference weekend will take place on Friday 31st March – Sunday 2nd April.
As Birmingham is such a central city, we hope travel will be simple for you and we have arranged for the hotels to be in the city centre because, through our research, these offer the cheapest option.
The awards evening will be held in the Great Hall in the university’s Aston Webb building which holds major events such as weddings and all of our graduation ceremonies.
In terms of this year’s judges, we have been getting very creative. However, I cannot disclose who these are until much closer to the time. NaSTA’s new patron Mars Elkins-El Brogy will be in attendance with a new award under her name. Details of this are to be confirmed.
The Guild TV members are all very excited to welcome you to our university and to have the NaSTA Awards and Conference take place on our turf. Good luck with all your content, I already know the standard is going to be incredibly high.
