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.
Past panels have included journalists from BusinessWeek, The Economist, Financial Times,
Fortune, Reuters, CNN, Bloomberg, CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, Marketplace Radio and many others. The discussion panels follow a question and answer format followed by one-on-one meetings. BAM conferences include two luncheons, a "best practices" panel on social media,
and an evening cocktail reception. BAM will be held October 4th and 5th 2018 in New York
at the Cornell Tech campus.
