The Business Access Media (BAM) conferences are the ultimate networking events for MBA public relations directors and the business media. Held annually in New York, Los Angeles or Washington, D.C., our BAM conferences put you in direct contact with the journalists who cover business
issues and write about your research, your graduates and your business schools. The conferences are held over two days and consist of four 90 minute panels with 4-5 business journalists each.
Panels have included journalists from BusinessWeek, The Economist, Financial Times,
Fortune, Reuters, CNN, Bloomberg, CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and many others. The discussion panels follow a question and answer format followed by one-on-one meetings. BAM conferences include two luncheons, best practices panels, and an evening cocktail reception. BAM will be held October 24th and 25th 2019 in Washington D.C. at the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business.
