News Media Alliance to Host adXchange 2018 Following Mega-Conference in San Diego

November 13, 2017

Arlington, VA – The News Media Alliance will host its second adXchange event for news media companies and advertisers February 28 – March 2, 2018 at the Embassy Hilton Suites – San Diego Bay Downtown in San Diego, CA. The conference will take place immediately following Mega-Conference 2018, for which the Alliance is a first-time partner, along with Inland Press Association, Local Media Association, Southern Newspaper Publishers Association (SNPA), and local host association in 2018, the California News Publishers Association.

The inaugural adXchange was held in September 2017 in Chicago. AdXchange is an event for newspaper and advertising and agency executives, designed to facilitate productive meetings and discussions in a one-on-one environment. In addition to meetings, throughout the two-day conference, attendees will have opportunities to hear from thought leaders on current hot topics and innovation in the news media industry, and participate in networking events.

“We are excited to be a partner of Mega-Conference this year and also to be able to hold adXchange while many of our members are already in San Diego for Mega-Conference,” said Michelle Harris, Alliance Vice President of Membership & Development. “These private meetings with advertisers and agencies are incredibly valuable to our members and we are pleased to be able to offer them once again.”

The conference will begin with registration from 3:00 – 6:00 pm on Wednesday, February 28. The event will get underway on Thursday, March 1 with a breakfast and presentation, followed by private meetings. Meetings continue through 1:00 pm on Friday, March 2.

News Media Alliance members receive complimentary registration to adXchange. Non-members who represent a news media organization can register for $300 per person.
