2004 Summer Conference

We’ve brought together some of the most powerful, influential people in media, adve rtising and broadcasting to enlighten you about the new realities of the way we do business. You?ll get to hobnob with the movers and shakers while they’re nice and relaxed — a much easier proposition than reaching them by phone. And you’ll come away infinitely wiser than you we re just three days before. With invaluable insights and information to share with your people. And a clear vision of what it takes to be a contender – and a winner – in the challenging new economic game.
