The ASBPE National 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 Program. Don’t miss this unique annual event for learning, camaraderie and fun!

For 2021, ASBPE’s National Conference is a month-long online event featuring publishing leaders who are charting a new path forward for B2B journalism. You can learn how to deal with the management, technical and financial issues that are shaping your future as a professional and the future of your publication. Hear what the country’s top experts have to say about business and editorial practices that work. Swap ideas with your peers from around the country in each webinar’s private breakout rooms. These online meetings still provide an atmosphere where you can easily network with your peers.

Already perhaps the best value in our industry, the conference is an even better value for members. Members get discounted rates to attend the annual conference and national Azbee Awards of Excellence celebration.
