#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 4th 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.

There’ll be media attending from Australia’s leading outlets. You’ll hear from the media and have the opportunity to meet them face-to-face. There will be two panels, followed by workshop sessions where you will make some authentic media connections.

This is a game-changer for any business or organisation that is looking to make an impact in the contemporary media world. You really shouldn’t miss out on #MeetTheMedia.
