A History of Bringing You Great Minds

Here Are Some of the Great Minds You'll Hear at Convergence This Year

It's all about revenue and audience-building, and we bring outsiders and insiders to give you a snapshot of the media world we're living in and how you can best capture revenues at your radio station. This isn't future talk, its about what is happening today, which you may not be aware of.... but should be.

This year's focus is social networking, which is not a fad but a legitimate tool for increasing revenues. We'll show you why this is a giant revolution for business and how you can capture it to your advantage at your radio station.
