"As a historian of the American South, I've found the newspapers of the region my best guide to what people were thinking, saying and doing through the South's tumultuous history," Ayers said. "The work of historians, like the work of newspapers today, is being transformed by the digital revolution, unlocking the millions of words about the past that have been filed away on microfilm. New ways of finding broad patterns and telling details in the papers of the past offer exciting opportunities for historians and for newspapers that want to deepen their connection to their communities today."
Inland, Local Media Association and Southern Newspaper Publishers Association have contracted with Carol Hudler – long-time media executive and Gannett group publisher, and one of the brightest minds in the industry – to coordinate the development of the 2015 program. Hudler's goal is to make this outstanding conference even better with distinctive programming that goes beyond traditional industry offerings in its scope, perspective and focus on problem-solving.
Expect more program choices in breakout sessions – including a new series of problem-solving sessions run by technical experts from our R&D community.
Also look for more users-groups and corporate executives meetings to be held in conjunction with this industry event.
The expanded program format is designed to encourage every attendee to choose a unique combination of topics that tailors the meeting to individual needs and specific interests.
THE TRADE SHOW
The Trade Show will expand in Atlanta to nearly 100 exhibitors, and many of them will be offering interactive product demonstrations in spaces that are more technically advanced.
The time you spend in the Trade Show will be even more conducive to discovery – improved mapping, more seating, continuous refreshments, longer breaks, and the option to make the Trade Show the primary reason that you attend the conference.
