2024 New England Newspaper Convention Sponsorship Opportunities

Looking to expand your business, build your brand, and connect with decision-makers in the newspaper industry? Then you won’t want to miss the New England Newspaper Convention!

The Convention takes place annually and will be held on March 22-23, 2024 at the Westin Waltham Boston Hotel. As a sponsor, you’ll have access to various award program opportunities, and as an exhibitor, take advantage of two days of live programming to meet with attendees.

This is an excellent opportunity to connect with executives and staff from hundreds of news organizations throughout the New England region. You’ll have the chance to promote your product or service to publishers, editors, and top advertising, production, and circulation executives from daily, weekly, specialty, and online newspapers serving Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.

Our sponsorship and exhibitor packages offer:

  • Position yourself as a thought leader with opportunities to provide educational content through session sponsorships. Packages include article submissions in the eBulletin and webinars presented to NENPA members in 2024.
  • Business development opportunities before, during, and after the Convention through social media shoutouts, banner ads on the NENPA website, eBulletin sponsorship, registration information, and listing in our NENPA member online community.

Contact Tara Cleary at t.cleary@nenpa.com or (617) 520-4585 with any questions and to reserve your sponsorship.
