"Brainworks Software felt there was only one way to introduce our newest and latest media industry specific product, Stratica Advertising & CRM, and that was at the Mega-Conference in Las Vegas in 2019. The Mega-Conference attracts the high level executives that we wanted to showcase our company and latest product to, so it was a no-brainer to be a proud sponsor. The customer service provided by the event organizers is and always has been top notch. You can tell they really care about their sponsors by their professionalism, quickness to respond and strategic guidance leading up and during the event. The continuous success of the Mega-Conference is a direct reflection of the event organizers' constant drive and desire to see their sponsors succeed. We are looking forward to being a proud sponsor in Fort Worth in 2020!"

"There are only two reasons I go to a conference: hallway conversations and stimulating seminars. The Mega-Conference is hands down the best place to do either."

"NTVB Media has been working with the newspaper industry for more than 30 years, and the Mega-Conference is a great opportunity for us to see a vast majority of our 180+ TV Weekly partners as well as to promote our syndicated entertainment content program to papers of all sizes and frequency. The beauty of the Mega-Conference is it attracts publishers, editors, advertising/marketing executives and circulation managers, which gives exhibitors and attendees the unique opportunity to talk to the decision-makers they need to reach at one event.

"The Mega-Conference is the most valuable event that TownNews attends each year. It is the one event a year that allows us to showcase our products and services to a large audience that includes hundreds of our current partners and future prospects. We also use the big impact that Mega-Conference provides to debut new programs that will make a positive impact on our industry. If we had to pick one event each year that is a best attend event for TownNews, it would be the Mega-Conference."
