MPMC Conference for Editors, Freelance Reporters and Journalists

By Della Domingo

During the 2014 MPMC Media Trade Conference, journalists will have the opportunity to conduct private interviews with leading manufacturers.

Journalists—including freelancers, bloggers, TV reporters and magazine writers—are invited to sit down in private, uninterrupted meetings with executives from manufacturing companies during the 2014 MPMC Media Trade Conference, taking place January 21–23, 2014, in Santa Ana, California. Registration is available at

Unlike traditional trade events where media attendees walk the Show floor, participants will receive a personalized schedule that includes meetings with manufacturers that they have selected. These meetings allow reporters to conduct high-quality interviews that can result in a year’s worth of editorial content. Reporters are able to select from 100 companies and indicate which companies they wish to meet with, so that they are only meeting with companies that are relevant to their outlet.

Media can register early to select the manufacturers that best match their editorial needs. A final schedule will include individual meetings with manufacturers every half hour, allowing participants to meet with up to 14 manufacturers in a single day. Plus, media may choose to attend one, two or all three days—whatever is most convenient.

There is no cost for media members to attend, and lunch is provided each day.

Register early before schedules start to fill up. The priority registration deadline is Monday, December 16, 2013. After that date, meetings will be assigned as space is available.
