Three-Month Trial Memberships

Save money ... and experience the benefits of being a member of three industry associations


Companies that are not current members of Inland, SNPA or the Local Media Association can save hundreds of dollars when registering for sponsorships or exhibit space for the Mega-Conference by taking advantage of a special trial membership offer.

For just $679, receive a three-month trial membership in the three sponsoring associations: Inland, LMA and SNPA.

When purchased at the time of registration, this special three-month membership package saves exhibitors and sponsors between $321 and $1,321 and gives your company and its employees the opportunity to experience the benefits of membership in all three of the sponsoring associations.

The trial memberships begin on the opening day of the Mega-Conference and end on May 27.  During the trial membership period, your company's representatives will have full access to training programs, publications, webinars and website features from all three associations.

Here is a brief description of each association, and a link to the website of each organization:
