Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Meet the Press Event


The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Seattle Chapter will host a luncheon from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at the Washington Athletic Club, 1325 Sixth Avenue, Seattle, WA 98101.

The event will include a group of panelists from Gray Magazine, Puget Sound Business Journal, the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce, and The Registry to discuss and answer all your media relations questions including: Is there a “right” way to write a press release? What’s an editorial calendar, and why should you pay attention to them? What is a press cycle? Can you leverage copy across multiple channels? How does placement impact reach? Join us for an opportunity to meet Rachel Gallaher of Gray Magazine, Marc Stiles of the Puget Sound Business Journal, and Vlad Bosonac (bow-sonnets) of The Registry to learn what they consider news, how they like to receive it, and what you can do to keep your firm top of mind.


Tickets for the event are $65.00 for SMPS members or $85.00 for guests. Early Bird pricing ends at 9 AM on March 11th.
