PMDMC 2024 - Why you should attend

Public media’s broadcast landscape is shifting. The future depends on our ability to adapt and expand audiences.

PMDMC is your catalyst for transformation. It’s the must-attend conference for public media leaders and revenue-generating professionals from organizations of all sizes. This is where we make plans that drive industry innovation and secure a sustainable future for our vital public service.

When you attend, you’ll join colleagues from inside and outside public media to explore strategies to:

  • Leverage existing loyal audiences to increase major and mid-level gifts, even as broadcast audiences decline.
  • Dramatically increase our audience-building capacity and non-broadcast engagement/impact.
  • Imagine a future where our organizations are no longer media companies, but media-enabled community builders.

You’ll gain the insights, inspiration, and connections you need to build a thriving future for public media in your community.

The PMDMC Experience:

  • Conference sessions that are problem- and solution-centric, focusing on business outcomes and concrete takeaways, instead of processes or roles.
  • Transformational learning experiences that cultivate wisdom, insight, and increased sharing.
  • A culture of learning that involves the appreciation of differences, openness to new ideas, and time for reflection.
  • Keynote experiences that deliver an emotional high that will carry you into the year to come.

It’s the best conference all year for your entire development and marketing teams:

  • Public media leaders will access valuable strategic steps designed to increase untapped or under-explored revenue.
  • Development professionals will obtain actionable ideas and strategies that can immediately drive more revenue at your station.
  • Marketing professionals will discover strategies to connect with and serve new audiences so we can best reach our broader communities.
  • All attendees will access connections to other system professionals who are tackling the same complex industry problems that you are.
  • All attendees will leave feeling energized and more passionate than ever about the mission of public media.
