AOL, ‘Legion of Extraordinary Dancers’ Named NATPE Honorees

The NATPE trade show is for the second year recognizing digital contributions to the content biz, honoring a handful of companies and personalities at its upcoming confab in Miami.

AOL, IKEA, the LXD, Control TV and Gary Vaynerchuk will be recognized as “Content Innovators” on the last day of the market Jan. 26.

The so-called Digital Luminary Awards will be handed out in partnership with Tubefilter.

NATPE president-CEO Rick Feldman said Wednesday the awards acknowledge “the innovative people and companies who serve as catalysts for the digital content revolution.”

Recipients will be feted during a reception hosted by Mark Gantt of the Bannen Way at the confab’s central location, the Fontainebleau Resort. The 5 pm event will also be streamed live on the NATPE website.
