March 25-28, 2011
NAA introduced mediaXchange as the annual event to bring newspaper executives together with peers; experts from the newspaper media and other industries; and the Associate Members who offer products, services and partnerships to support the business.
A key element is The eXchange:
Exchange (n), a marketplace for ideas, products and services to be offered and received, often limited to members.*
Over 80 NAA Associate member companies support mediaXchange. These companies commit time, capital and energy to develop products and services for the industry and The eXchange is their annual showcase.
More than a traditional exhibit hall, The eXchange features new ideas and partnerships, as well as a means to maintain longstanding relationships.
A combination of advance planning and serendipity can work together to help you identify resources for growth and success at your newspaper media company.
Register before March 4 to save $100!
The mediaXchange online floor plan and directory offers profiles for all participating companies – you can search by company name, keyword, or product category. Click to open detailed company profiles, and email to send inquiries or set appointments.
The mediaXchange program will be available hard-copy with your registration materials, and online as an e-edition. This is your best resource to review exhibitor information and make plans to visit many during the three days of The eXchange.
Each day, social events are held in The eXchange – Landmark Ballroom. See below for details. These meals and social functions are included in your registration, and provide a great time to visit exhibitors and network informally.
Beyond the social events, The eXchange is open all day – for your list of “must see” exhibitors. Time between sessions, or when there is not a breakout of interest, is well spent getting the latest ideas from the industry.
With dozens of first time exhibitors, new products and services from long time industry partners and representatives working with many companies in and outside the newspaper media business, you are sure to pick up ideas and start relationships if you make the time. Try to allow at least an hour each day to visit companies in The eXchange, take ideas back home to your colleagues, and thank our Associate Members for investing time, and financial resources, to make NAA mediaXchange a great event.
A few minutes of your time and a sincere “thanks for being here” make a big difference!
Event sponsors make a significant difference in the quality and quantity of speakers, meals, events and amenities at NAA mediaXchange – they will be wearing white SPONSOR ribbons on their badges, please give them an extra Thank You.
