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.
