The three-day event will take place from January 22nd until the 24th at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami and has confirmed keynote addresses from newly tapped NBC Co-Chairmen George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy.
Weiss joins NATPE from Future Plc where he served as Vice President, Group Publisher for Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. There, he successfully presided over their advertising sales division and extensive event portfolio, including the B&C Hall of Fame, MCN Wonder Women, and NYC Television Week.

“We are excited to have Charlie join us here at NATPE. He brings with him invaluable experience and insight that align perfectly with NATPE’s mission to steer the business of content said JP Bommel, President and CEO of NATPE. “Charlie is one of the most respected executives in our business and we are proud to have him join our team to grow the organization year-round. He’s uniquely qualified to navigate the constant change in our industry”.
“I’m privileged be joining NATPE – a highly respected organization that stands synonymous with growth and innovation. As our industry continues to evolve, fueled with the inertia of content creation and distribution, NATPE has remained at the forefront of ambition and relevance. I look forward to building on their decades of amazing work of education and connectivity, and to providing our clients with the strongest opportunities, vehicles, and value industry-wide.”
