The world of news media is changing rapidly. New delivery methods get us news faster than ever before, some outlets are shuttering their doors while new startups crop up, and all journalists are trying to do more with less.
Yet forging relationships with the media remains one of the most important tasks in any PR professional’s day.
PR Daily’s Media Relations Conference, June 5-6 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., will help you keep up no matter how fast the industry changes. If you aren’t registered yet, here’s why you can’t miss out.
- The speakers
The lineup of speakers includes people from both sides of the media relations equation. You’ll hear from journalists with organizations like NPR and The Hill about what they need from PR pros. You’ll also learn how experts at earned media place their stories. You’ll hear from communicators who work for brands including Southwest Airlines and Mars, nonprofits like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, governmental agencies such as the U.S. Navy and higher education institutions including Northeastern University.
No matter where you sit, you’ll find plenty of lightbulb moments to take home.
- The attendees
One of the best parts of any Ragan conference is the chance to connect with other passionate professionals. Every person in attendance has chosen to take an actionable step to improve their skills and their career. Whether you’re chatting between sessions or connecting over a cocktail during our rooftop welcome reception, the bonds you forge at this conference can help you widen your network and even propel your career.
- The setting
The conference is held in Washington, D.C., one of the greatest seats of media and political power in the world, in the fabled halls of the National Press Club. Some use the trip as a chance to take meetings with some of the many journalists who call D.C. home — or maybe take the time to enjoy the world-class museums and deep history the district offers.
- The potential
The most successful PR pros always remember that they can learn more. No matter how accomplished they are, they’re always looking for new skills to add to their arsenal.
