Top Reason to Attend Proclaim 16: Strategic Networking!

NRB NetgworkingWhen it comes to strategic networking opportunities for Christian media and ministry professionals, NRB’s International Christian Media Convention is a frontrunner.

With hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of participants, the Convention provides participants with the opportunity to directly meet and speak with representatives of various organizations and service providers, including Answers in Genesis, Baker Publishing Group, Christian Friends of Israel, Christian Healthcare Ministries, DonorDirect, Family Research Council, Ka You Communications, Marketing Support Network, MicahTek, Inc., Reach Beyond, TWR, and many more. The soon-to-be-released Convention app, furthermore, will help you set up appointments and notify exhibitors of your desire to connect.

Also at the upcoming Convention, Proclaim 16, will be an Industry Networking Reception on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, that will offer you special access to peers in your respective field, whether it be church media, film, Internet, radio, or television. Furthermore, for international attendees and attendees whose organizations have an international outreach, the International Reception sponsored by Arqiva on Monday, February 22, will allow you to meet Christian communicators from around the world.

And that’s only the beginning!

At the upcoming Convention, there will be several industry-specific summits where you’ll hear from leaders in your field and rub elbows with like-minded media and ministry professionals. The NRB Digital Media Summit, a pre-Convention event, will be held on February 22, 2016. Other summits that will take place during the week of Proclaim 16 include the Radio Summit, TV Summit, Church Media Summit, International Summit, Film & Entertainment Summit, and Donor Development Summit. There will also be a special Pastors Track.

As an added benefit, there will be autograph booths on the award-winning Exposition floor featuring more than a dozen authors and Christian leaders who are available to sign books and other items. Participating will be Sami Cone, Mark Gregston, Ken Ham, Star Parker, and Tony Perkins, among others.
