The evening also featured a keynote panel discussion, What Does it Take to Succeed in a B2B Media Career?

The panelists were:

  • Betsy Bair, content leader and project manager at Penton’s MeetingsNet.
  • Kelley Damore, chief community officer of UBM.
  • Mark Schlack, ASBPE national president and senior vice-president of editorial for TechTarget.

All have navigated successful careers. Collectively, they have experience in print, online, and in planning conferences and events. At the banquet they talked about:

  • how aspiring editors can build a successful career in B2B journalism,
  • how the profession continues to change, and
  • what some of the emerging career paths of the next decade are.

One thing the panelists agreed on: the New York Times’ internal report on innovation in the newsroom is a must-read. (Others agree, including the Nieman Journalism Lab and Mashable; if you want a quick summary of the 96-page report, see Mashable’s brief on its 6 key points.)
