Mark your calendars today for the fabulous fall publishers’ conference September 19 – 21 in Providence, Rhode Island – the first-ever joint venture between the New England Newspaper and Press Association and the New York Press Association.

The networking alone will be worth the trip, but there’s a whole lot more on tap: world-class speakers include Kyle McDowell, Nicco Mele, and a host of others talking about building and sustaining a culture of excellence, best practices and solid strategies for paywalls, newsletters, branded content, monetizing first-party data, web development, promoting civil discourse and more!

Did we mention the food?  Gracie’s is a storied Providence institution and Al Forno is a renowned foodie favorite.  Water fire sets the river ablaze on Saturday night, featuring scenic gondola rides, cocktails, your choice of food trucks, seafood restaurants, unlimited Italian choices on Providence’s famous Federal Hill, and more.
