Mark Your Calendar for ASBPE’s Most Exciting Conference Yet
Save the dates of May 15-17, 2024, for ASBPE’s 2.5-day virtual National Conference, national Azbee Awards of Excellence presentation and new Annual Members’ Forum. Our 2024 conference will have an edgier theme: “Evolve or Die. The Next Wave of B2B’s Digital Transformation.” We aim to push beyond the standard best practices and networking for our members. We’ll focus on changes in the digital landscape and provide actionable tips for how to adapt and rise to challenges, evolve to keep afloat, and stay engaged with readers — even as the tools we use continue to shift.
Location: We’re saving you travel dollars by hosting the conference virtually in 2024, but we won’t hold back on the programming, networking and fun you’ve come to expect from our conference.
Each year, ASBPE’s National Conference & Azbee Awards Banquet offers members an opportunity to get insight into best practices of B2B journalism, network with colleagues from across the country, and honor the winners of the Azbee Awards competition. Don’t miss this unique event to join your ASBPE colleagues from across the U.S. for networking, best practices, great learning opportunities, camaraderie and fun!
Plus keep an eye out for special announcements as ASBPE celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2024! As part of our 60th, we’re doubling down on our commitment to member service. We’ve updated and added additional member options to more accurately reflect the roles in our B2B publishing community and shared a new online member community (with updated discussion groups coming soon). We’ll be launching a new quarterly member survey — where members can share feedback with us more regularly — and investing in new programming for our members. The new Annual Members’ Forum, hosted during the National Conference, creates a space for members to help our Board of Directors shape key initiatives for the following year.
Stay tuned for more information in coming months!
