ASBPE’s annual conference and regional events are the best networking and educational opportunities for B2B editors, writers, designers and other publishing professionals. Additionally, ASBPE is the sole organization that celebrates the work of B2B, trade and association publishing in the United States. Our national conference and Azbee Awards of Excellence banquet truly are rewarding experiences on multiple levels. Join us in Atlanta from May 11-12, 2023.
Benefits of Attending
We have so much to talk about!
ASBPE has built a wealth of networking time into our conference program, allowing you to connect with peers, trade best practices and maybe even find your future employer.
We all need a little celebration!
The B2B community has produced groundbreaking content over the last year, covering diverse industries amid a pandemic recovery and economic uncertainty, social unrest and more. We’ll celebrate our national Azbee Awards of Excellence winners at a fun and social evening celebration on May 11.
Wait until you see the lineup!
We really are celebrating heroes of B2B journalism. This year’s conference speakers and topics address everything you need to develop your own journalism super powers — from practical, actionable ideas for improving your workflow and your publications to keen insights and professional advice for writers, editors, designers, publishers and everyone else involved in the B2B media industry. Don’t miss our keynote speaker, Nick Chiles, author and writer in residence at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Atlanta is the place to be!
Atlanta is an historic and thriving metropolis with multiple Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies, a diverse population, multiple universities, an abundance of greenspace and a remarkable tree canopy (Atlanta is known as “the city in a forest”). The city’s economic, political and cultural contributions to the fabric of our nation cannot be understated. Come see for yourself!
