BROADCAST-U is a brand new event for public relations professionals at universities, colleges, engineering schools, business schools, and non-profits. Based on our BAM events held since 1998 for universities, BROADCAST-U lets PR professionals personally network with broadcast reporters, producers and bookers in one place, at one time. The media professionals from TV networks, cable TV and radio will speak on four separate panels throughout the day. During the panels, the journalists will discuss their coverage areas and answer questions from the audience. After the Q&A session, each attendee will personally meet every journalist. We limit the audience to less than 100 so that after each panel, every attendee can meet each journalist.
Wynne Events has been producing prestigious media networking conferences for 20 years. We regularly attract top journalist from around the world including Reuters, CNN, Bloomberg, CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Associated press, New York Times, Washington Post, and many others. The conference will also include a luncheon, a best practices panel and an evening cocktail and networking reception. BROADCAST-U will be hosted by PwC in New York on Friday, May 3 at 300 Madison Avenue, New York, 10017. On the afternoon of May 2, we will take a private tour of Bloomberg TV. The cost is $1500 for universities and non-profits, and $2000 for PR agencies and corporate sponsors.
