 Unless you’re blessed with an unlimited advertising budget for 2007, you’ll need to decide where to spend a finite number of advertising dollars.

Join Beryl Love, the Reno Gazette-Journal’s new Executive Editor, and Dan Watkins, News Channel 8’s Local Sales Manager/Internet Sales Director as they discuss the options for allocating your advertising budget. They’ll address critical issues, including:

· How has Mass Media been effected by the fragmentation by other media platforms (i.e., online, digital marketing, etc.)?
· Where does the Mass Media NOW fit in a company’s marketing plan?
· Measuring aggregate reach of a family of products across different audiences
· How print and electronic media:

o Develop content and platforms to grow specific audiences needed by advertisers.
o Offer advertisers a variety of ways to reach the audiences that are right for them.

Who Should Attend – If you’re responsible for an advertising budget or are considering advertising in 2007, plan to attend this important event.
