Grand Street Cafe
4740 Grand Ave.
Kansas City, MO 64112

Local editorial gatekeepers and reporters will share their thoughts on building relationships and survival in today’s challenging media atmosphere in this round table discussion. Hear how their newsrooms work, stories they most like to cover and their perspective on connecting the dots between PR and media.

Then, we’ll cap off the hour during the last 20 minutes with a media relations version of the popular show Shark Tank. This is your opportunity to pitch these journalists directly in our version of “Pitch Tank.” Not a requirement for attendees, but why not have some fun in a win-win atmosphere. Craft your most authentic, engaging pitch, and give it a try. We all know it’s tough and competitive out there in media relations land! 

Advanced registration required.
Please sign up by the end of day 10/25. If applicable, provide dietary restrictions in the Special Instructions and Comments section of registration.
