The Advertiser Roundtables will take place during mediaXchange on Monday, May 1, from 3:30-4:45pm. It will provide advertisers and agencies a terrific opportunity to meet with more Alliance members.
The event floor will encourage members to float from one experience to the next, engaging in longer, more focused discussions that lead to productive outcomes and actionable ideas.
The convention room will consist of several areas with distinct purposes:
Main Stage – Keynote speakers will address broad cultural and environmental themes affecting the news media industry, as well as translate research data on audience and news consumption patterns to increase readership and engagement.
Innovation Stage – Presentations that showcase how the industry is innovating, including the fourth annual Accelerator Pitch program featuring media startups offering innovative solutions for news media.
Table Talks – On the show floor, table talks will offer deeper dives on content directly sourced from members through ideaxchange, social media and the website. Attendees choose which talks they want to go to. Each table conversation lasts 30-45 minutes and is led by a designated facilitator. Attendees can float between table talks.
