Why did Nikon reserve a big booth for the 2018 NAB show?

This year Nikon has booked a rather large booth for the 2018 NAB show that will take place in April (7th-12th). Nikon's booth is in the middle of the Central Hall and is almost as big as other video-heavy-hitters like JVC, Fuji and Arri. Just a reminder that Nikon was not part of the 2016 and 2017 NAB shows.

Nikon 1: the little camera that could

Nikon 1 - the little camera that could by Thomas Stirr (check out also his ebook with the same title):

After using Nikon APS-C and full frame DSLRs in the past, I’ve been using the Nikon 1 system exclusively for my client video business and for my still photography needs for the past two and a half years.
