Save the Dates: March 30 - April 1, 2015

If you missed this year's America East Media Business and Technology Conference, you missed out on a great event! The 2014 conference featured a sold out exhibit floor and a growing list of news media personnel in attendance. 

Make plans now to save the dates for our 2015 event at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania! It will be the largest newspaper event on the East Coast in 2015, including a collaboration with 360 Media Alliance.

America East focuses on maximizing print profit and generating new digital revenue. This three-day show will provide practical, executable insights into vital media topics including strategic perspectives, revenue diversification, growing audience, and technology/operations. The show floor offers media business decision makers the opportunity to meet with the largest aggregation of industry suppliers.  Affordable registration fees, great networking opportunities and a growing exhibitor floor make this event a go-to conference for the newspaper industry.
