Org to hold annual convention in Miami

For the first time in many years, the National Association of Television Program Executives will hold its annual convention in Miami, Fla., home of showbiz language-translation firm The Kitchen.

A division of TM Systems, The Kitchen specializes in dubbing and subtitling services for multiple languages. It will welcome networks, distributors and production companies from around the world as they attend the NATPE event.

“Our studios are rolling out the red carpet, as thousands of international program executives make the trip to Miami,” said Kitchen CEO Ken Lorber. Along with exec VP Deeny Kaplan and West Coast language director Kumiko Yamaguchi, Lorber will be hosting NATPE attendees at Kitchen facilities, a 15-minute ride from the convention.
