The 2014 SNPA News Industry Summit will feel like a new experience. The location is new, and SNPA President Tom Silvestri has crafted an agenda with more time for networking, mind-expanding programming, a visit to Monticello ... and not a single speaker that you have seen at other industry events.
The first speaker, in fact, is a symphony conductor.
The agenda includes an expanded town-hall idea-exchange, a major advertiser, a university president, an expert on branding, insights from the NEX-GEN program, a fast-moving segment on growing revenue and audience, R&D partners with new products and services, and much more.
"If you're in need of a jolt in leadership inspiration, a comfortable getaway in the mountains to recharge your energy, a timeout to refresh your thinking for the last quarter of 2014, and a fun opportunity to catch up with friends or make new acquaintances that could be game-changing, I welcome you to come to Mr. Jefferson's hometown," said SNPA President Tom Silvestri. "Get out of your routine and book the time to spend in Charlottesville so you can renew your drive to excellence with the organization that's always had the publisher's best interest and well-being at heart. I guarantee your presence will be well worth it."
Registration for the meeting begins this week, and discounted registration continues until Aug. 15.
There's even a special discount for first-time attendees!
The News Industry Summit will be held Oct. 6-8 at The Boar's Head Inn in Charlottesville, Va.
