Each year, the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association provides conferences throughout the state for the various departments of our member newspaper companies. These conferences and events allow our members to gather for one to three days to expand their revenue-generating opportunities, management skills and industry knowledge through educational sessions, outstanding speakers and facilitators, networking and social events.
The premiere news media industry trade show and technology conference is held each spring in Hershey. While more than 100 newspaper suppliers exhibit their products and services, a variety of cutting-edge educational sessions, seminars and user group meetings are held during three value-packed days.
