Ever wonder why your prized press release never made it into the paper? What about the best way to pitch a news reporter? Or how about the structural changes now occurring in area newsrooms?
For answers to these and other pressing questions, please join us for our upcoming Southwest Florida news media panel.
This event is always one of our most popular programs of the year. We will feature eight representatives of the region’s leading print and broadcast publications. A new twist on this event will be our “speed dating” theme, which will help ensure that you have an opportunity for one-on-one time with each media representative.
Want to RSVP? For your convenience, you can reserve a spot for you and your guests or pay with a credit card through our secure PayPal system. We still accept only cash and checks at the door.
