Raising Awareness Is Serious Business at Oct. 23’s FMC Connection Day Conference

Multiple Opportunities To Get In The News, Learn & Network

 Raising awareness has never been harder: Technology keeps introducing new channels — creating ‘white noise’ — as attention spans get shorter. But have no fear: At FMC Connection Day. we’re giving you the tools, tips, techniques and connections you need to become the next big thing.

We’ll kick off with the first ever LONG ISLAND-NEW YORK MEDIA SUMMIT, and go right into opportunities for you to meet and pitch the media. FMC Connection Day is the largest event in the country to bring the media together with the community. Expect to meet the media from the entire New York metro area. (TIP: Come prepared to pitch real stories.)

Our NETWORKING AMBASSADORS will help you make connections and get the most of the day, while EXHIBITORS work in creative ways to get your attention (TIP: Exhibitors can hold press conferences, create photo opportunities, hold food drives — you get the idea, right?)

Multiple breakout sessions throughout the day will run the gamut on all facets of dealing with news, social media, current events and building your brand.
