A collegial atmosphere unlike any other conference, where professional relationships are started and nurtured over many years. Vendors and attendees break barriers and gain powerful and useful knowledge.

NMM Conference Structure

The National Media Market & Conference convenes in an all-suite hotel rather than a convention center, allowing exhibitors to set up individual preview stations within their suites for on-demand screening and discussions with buyer-attendees.

Exhibitors' suites are clustered together to make it convenient for attendees to meet with exhibitors.   A program guide is published prior to the Market to help attendees prioritize and maximize the time they'll spend browsing exhibitors’ offerings.

In addition to film previews, attendees can meet with exhibitors from content platforms for streaming video and other services relevant to media collection at public and educational institutions.
