BUSINESS ACCESS MEDIA CONFERENCE

BUSINESS ACCESS MEDIA CONFERENCE

The Business Access Media (BAM) conferences are the ultimate networking events for MBA public relations directors and the business media. Held annually in New York,  Los Angeles or Washington, D.C., our BAM conferences put you in direct contact with the journalists who cover business issues and write about your research, your graduates and your business schools. The conferences are held over two days and consist of four 1 ½ hour panels with four business journalists each. Past panels have included journalists from BusinessWeek, The Economist, Financial Times, Fortune, Reuters, CNN, Bloomberg, CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, Marketplace Radio and many others. The discussion panels follow a question and answer format followed by one-on-one meetings. BAM conferences include two luncheons, a "best practices" panel on social media, and an evening cocktail reception.

 

BAM will be held at UCLA's Anderson School of Business October 4-5. Hotel rooms and all sessions will be held at the new Luskin Conference Center. The cost is $1500.
