Summit prices go up after Monday

Monday, April 17 is the early bird registration deadline for the CNPA Press Summit, coming up May 18-20 in Santa Monica.

The Summit, themed “Thriving Locally in the Digital Age,” promises insights into business, advertising and journalism; networking with leaders at California’s top newspaper-based media companies and a beach-side stay at a top resort.

Tani Cantil-Sakauye Our keynote speakers include former U.S. defense secretary Leon Panetta; California’s chief justice, Tani Cantil-Sakauye; McClatchy VP/Innovation Chris Hendricks and Pulitzer-winning food writer Jonathan Gold of the Los Angeles Times.

Attendees will learn about the millennial workforce, the business and advertising outlook for recreational marijuana, about sponsored-content programs and how to use Facebook to drive traffic and build reader engagement.

There’s also the “hot idea” session featuring publishers who have implemented successful revenue programs and the vendors who helped them. And we’ll share tips on using the Public Records Act in local reporting, plus a lot more.

Pricing for the 2017 Summit is specifically geared for inclusion, with discounts for second and additional registrants from the same newspaper flag. CNPA also is offering rebates to newspaper members who stay multiple nights in the CNPA room block.

Please don’t delay. Registration rates begin to scale up after Monday, so please view the program and take advantage this week.

The CNPA room block at the host Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel also closes on Monday, April 17. For discounted rates, be sure to book your rooms by Monday.
