Who Attends America East?
In recent years, upwards of 900 attendees, representing approximately 250 different newspapers and media organizations visited America East!
America East attendees come from news media organizations of varying circulations and represent all areas of responsibilities, including management, sales/marketing, circulation, editorial, production, and digital.
While our direct marketing efforts are aimed primarily at states along the east coast, we also draw attendees from more than 20 states and as far away as California, Texas, Florida and Canada. More than 90 percent of our attendees hail from newspapers and multimedia companies in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Ohio and West Virginia as well as New England.
America East, administered by the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, partners with 14 other state press associations as well as Editor & Publisher, Local Media Association, NetNewsCheck and News & Tech to bring the widest variety of attendees and programming to Hershey.
Year after year, our attendee roster minimally overlaps with other conferences and trade shows. Most of the attendees you see at America East, you won’t see at another trade show. It’s an opportunity not to be missed!
