With the shared goal of taking newspapers and websites into the next phase of a changing industry, more than 500 members of the publishing industry gathered Feb. 17-19 for the Key Executives Mega-Conference at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas.
A joint effort of newspaper media associations, including America’s Newspapers (formed from the merger of Inland Press Association and Southern Newspaper Publishers Association), Local Media Association and News Media Alliance, the Mega-Conference annually brings together allied members of the industry to share their enthusiasm and passion for local journalism.
I had the pleasure of representing Family Features at the conference to introduce representatives for a multitude of publications to our digital and print editorial content. Publishers and editors were excited to learn more about Family Features’ capabilities to enhance websites and create reader engagement through content widgets and recipe videos.
