Senior Leadership Conference to address challenges newspaper industry continues to face

The America’s Newspapers Senior Leadership Conference, set for October 17-19 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, will be different from traditional meetings you've attended before.

As we come out of the pandemic, a different type of conference is needed.  Clearly, health and safety protocols will be in place.  And, the focus will be on addressing the challenges the newspaper industry continues to face.

America's Newspapers invites you to join us to explore new strategies and chart new courses for newspapers. This conference will be about generating ideas for the future. 

More collaboration — fewer presentations

More participation — fewer PowerPoints

More solutions — fewer sessions

And more time for connections with your colleagues in a positive environment

Due to the setup of this conference, attendance will be limited. 

Newspaper executives and journalism educators: register here.  View conference registration fees, including discounts: here.

Solutions Partners and supplier companies: register here.

We will refund 100% of your registration fee if cancellation is received by Aug. 15. For cancellations received after Aug. 15, 50% of your registration fee will be refunded. No refunds are possible for cancellations after Aug. 31, but substitute registrations will be accepted.
