Meet The Press: How to Connect with Media

Sponsored by the AIA Baltimore Practice Management Committee and Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Maryland

1.0 AIA/CES LU available
Anxious to get your next design or construction project noticed in the press but unsure where to start? Find out exactly what journalists are looking for and how to approach them for a story in 2020. At Meet The Press we connect you directly to a panel of working journalists in Baltimore and give you an inside perspective on approaches and opportunities to advance the stories your design or construction team wants to tell.

Hear from reporters and editors from print, digital, and broadcast media who cover design, architecture, construction , development, and the built environment in Baltimore, regionally, and nationally. Panelists from the media will present the trends and topics they are covering today, and how they identify the stories and projects they cover.

Engage in a dialogue about new topics and story ideas, how the design and construction professionals can communicate our vision for the built environment, and ultimately make a plan to tell the story of our valuable contributions to the community.
