Media Attendees

What types of media attend?
We put together a combination of print, broadcast and digital media for each event.  Generally we have a higher proportion of top national magazines.  We match the media with the event theme, so that the editors from the appropriate departments at each media outlet are invited.
Will there be advertising sales attendees?
No!  Our events are editorial media only!  If anyone tries to refer you to their ad department, please let us know.  We carefully screen each media attendee, and they are all looking for products for editorial coverage.
How many media attendees can I expect to meet?
You can expect to meet between 20-35 media attendees at our Speed Pitching events and approximately 100-150 media at our larger Holiday Gift Guide tabletop event.
What are some of the media outlets that have attended in the past?
Past media attendees include The Today Show, O, The Oprah Magazine, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, People, Parents, Real Simple, CBS News, FOX News, Travel & Leisure, AP, The Wall Street Journal, Working Mother, Reader’s Digest, Essence, Rachael Ray EveryDay, The Rachael Ray Show, Weight Watcher’s Magazine, People StyleWatch, The Dr. Oz Show, BestProducts.com and many more!
What kind of screening do you do for your media attendees?
We personally research each media RSVP to make sure they are a good fit for that particular theme of event. We ask for credentials including past product placements and ensure they are in no way affiliated with advertising and are a solid editorial staff member.
Can I invite a member of the media to attend?
All media invites must come directly through us, however we encourage you to send us a media wish list of your top 10-20 media outlets you wish to attend.  We will make sure to send them an invitation.

Speed Pitching Information

What is the cost to attend a Speed Pitching event?
Each event is priced just a little different depending on the theme. Please check the event you are interested in for pricing information.
If I attend several of your Speed Pitching events will I meet different media at each event?
Yes! Depending on the theme of the event we will invite the staff member which best suites. For example, you may meet Family Circle at multiple events, but you would meet the food editor at our Let’s Eat event and the health editor at our Healthy Living event. We do have media who love our events so much they try to make it to all of them, so there may be some overlap from time to time.
How quickly do the Speed Pitching events sell out?
Depending on the theme of the event we have sold out certain events in less than 5 days! It’s best to get on the early registration list to make sure we don’t sell out before registration opens to the public.
How many Speed Pitching session are there at my event?
There are two 90-minute Speed Pitching sessions per event.  The morning session runs from 9:30am to 11am; and afternoon session runs from 12:30pm to 2pm.
How long are the Speed Pitching sessions?
Each Speed Pitching session is 90 minutes long.  You will rotate every 4-5 minutes from table to table.  During each 5-minute conversation you will be with one media outlet.  The is a one-on-one conversation.
How is Speed Pitching set up?
Each of the media panelists will be seated at a 3’ foot round table.  You will start at a random table and move clockwise until you have met with every media attendee.  There will be an orientation with a demonstration on the day of the event.
How many products can I pitch per event?
You can pitch no more than 2 products.
How many samples should I bring to the event?
All you need to bring with you the day of the event is the product you will be pitching.  Please bring your demonstration sample with you on the day of the event – it does not need to be at the hotel in advance.
What if my demonstration sample is large or difficult to move?
You will be responsible for transporting your sample from one table to the next.  If you run the risk of having your sample spill, break apart, or difficult to lift, please bring a small rolling cart to use as a transport system.  You do not want to use up your pitching time setting-up/cleaning up your sample.
How will the media receive a sample if I’m only bringing one?
Each media panelist will be shipped a nicely packaged boxed filled with each product and product information they are pitched.  Each exhibitor must send 40 samples of their product and product information prior to the event to be included.  Additional details are provided once you register for an event.
When should I arrive at the hotel?
We recommend always arriving the night before.  The check in time is 8:30am, and traffic from the airports is very heavy at this hour.
When should I check in at the event?
It is critical that you check in no later than 8:30am the day of the event.  There is a room provided for exhibitors, where you can prepare your samples, practice your pitch, and leave your belongings.  We serve a light breakfast in the exhibitor room.  Exhibitors arriving after 9:00am run the risk of having to sit out the first session with no refund.
