Add your business to the list!

LION Publishers will host our annual conference in Nashville Oct. 24-26, bringing together nearly 300 local independent online news industry leaders from across the country for conversations about the future of news and media.

LION Summit attendees are in the market for innovative products and services at the intersection of high technology and journalism, and are leading the media industry in embracing new vendors. This is your opportunity to showcase your business to our rapidly growing community. Members of LION Publishers are the CEOs and decision-makers of their organizations — you’ll meet with the top talent in local indie news.

At the national LION Summit, dozens of the local online news industry’s leaders and innovators will come together for conversations about the future of news and media and training in online reporting techniques. Our attendees are in the market for innovative products and services at the intersection of high technology and journalism, and are leading the broader media industry in embracing new vendors. Sponsoring the LION Summit is an opportunity to present your products and services to this innovative, vanguard community.

 

Contact Mark Glaser at LION Publishers today to add your name to the list of sponsors, and showcase your company to the leaders of the local news industry. You can reach him at markglaser@lionpublishers.com

We are also planning to add a new “speed dating” element to sponsorships so that sponsors will get to spend 10-minute one-on-one sessions with 10 top publishers of their choice. More details to come!
