The Key Executives Mega-Conference will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2020.  This is the major newspaper industry conference of the year; you can’t afford to miss it!

At the Key Executives Mega-Conference 2020 in Fort Worth, TX, join more than 700 media executives as we explore new approaches and new solutions to the issues facing the newspaper industry.

This is your chance to network face-to-face with newspaper executives from across the country on how they are transforming their newspapers companies into dynamic multi-media entities. Mega-Conference presenters are top executives from both large and small organizations who are at the forefront of the dramatic changes in consumer and advertiser attitudes.

The Key Executives Mega-Conference is a joint effort of newspaper media associations with an estimated combined membership of more than 5,000 publishers. Hosts are America’s Newspapers (formed from the merger of Inland Press Association and Southern Newspaper Publishers Association), Local Media Association and News Media Alliance. Members of each of these associations (plus our local partner – Texas Press Association) are eligible to register as attendees and reserve exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities at member rates.

Mega-Conference attendance ranges from 700-900 attendees. Most of the attendees are owners, publishers, digital officers or revenue officers of media operations with both print and digital assets, serving their local communities.
