#MeetTheMedia is Australia’s leading media introduction event. It’s designed to bring the decision-makers of media together with the experts and leaders of industry to better understand each other. It’s where we get to meet the Senior Producers, Editors, Chiefs of Staff, Presenters and Journalists who are the gatekeepers of their mediums. You’ll hear about the pressures they’re under, what makes them tick and what they look for in a story. No hidden agendas, no holding back!

#MeetTheMedia will give you a better understanding of the media cycle. You’ll learn how best to pitch a story, the preferred way to contact your desired media, what the media expect from you and what you can expect from the media. Like anything, if you understand the playing conditions, you can adjust your approach accordingly.

This event, now in it’s 7th year, is ideal for business owners, expert commentators and authorities from all specialty sectors. It also suits those from the fields of communications, public relations, brand management and media relations.

Due to COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021 we presented a series of very special editions of #MeetTheMedia online.  Whilst we were not allowed to meet in person, the digital events (via zoom) let attendees hear from some fantastic media representatives who helped educate and guide experts on how to better connect, communicate and stand out with the media today.  The information and tips were invaluable for those looking to engage with media.

We hoped to present in-person events around the country in 2021, however these had to be postponed due to ongoing restrictions.  New dates for Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide will be announced in 2022.
