Join community media professionals from across the country at the Marriott Minneapolis City Center on July 12-14, 2017 in Minneapolis, MN.

Come together with those attending the conference and navigate through this learning opportunity while creating and maintaining relationships. Themed this year as “Rivers to Cross”, this addresses our call to rise up against challenges in making media and align as strong members of the industry. “Rivers to Cross” also indicates the future and looking ahead to what is to come. The conference boasts a stimulating schedule containing informational sessions, exhibits from vendors, and various networking opportunities.

The exhibit hall opens in the afternoon of the first day of the conference, July 12, and stays open until the evening of July 13. The first day includes in-depth workshops, Region meetings, exhibitor demonstrations, the Opening Keynote, and a Welcome Reception in the exhibit hall area. On day two, we begin with a continental breakfast in the exhibit hall area and various panels and presentations throughout the day with breaks and networking opportunities in the exhibit hall area. Also on the second day, exhibitors have the opportunity to announce their prize winners to attendees before the exhibit hall breakdown. The evening of day two holds the Hometown Media Awards Celebration. The last day of the conference includes additional panels discussing important industry topics plus ACM’s annual awards luncheon. Any attendee with a full conference registration is invited to attend these activities.
