What Do SIPA Annual Attendees Have to Say?
For more than 20 years, the SIPA Annual has had a bigger impact on the growth of MDM than any other factor, with money-making ideas in new products, sales, marketing, content, digital, talent development and much more."
Thomas P. Gale
CEO, Modern Distribution Management
Every year, I implement ideas from SIPA’s Annual Conference that improve my business. I wouldn’t miss it."
Managing Director, Money-Media, a Financial Times company
Why do I attend the SIPA Annual Conference? Simply put, I leave every year with actionable ideas that I’m able to apply immediately in our business to drive more revenue. The conference easily pays for itself 10 times over!"
CEO, EB Medicine
The single resource that has had the greatest impact on my career, from a marketing coordinator to owner, has been attending the SIPA Annual Conference. Whether from the learning in the sessions or the learning from my colleagues during networking breaks, I always come away with ideas to help me grow revenues, improve my marketing, and propel my career. Time and money very well spent. That’s why every June for more than 30 years I’ve attended — I couldn’t stand the thought of missing out on the breakthrough ideas and inspiration."
President, Cabot Wealth Network
If you work in a special information publishing environment—owners, publishers, editors, marketers, content creators, and operations and customer service staff—being in Washington, D.C., in early June every year is a must, to attend the only industry conference devoted entirely to how to succeed in niche and specialty publishing. SIPA’s Annual Conference is a place to listen and learn, talk and engage, and network and connect with people who will share their wins and losses with you. There’s just nothing like it!"
Senior Vice President & Client Success Team Leader, Mequoda Systems
The best three days of learning and professional development available for our industry anywhere on the planet."
Non-Executive Director, Day News & Media
Great conference for all publishers, whether you are a new-by or have been in the business for a while. Wonderful sharing, where I can learn from others in different industries."
Publisher, Hudson Valley Parent
I'm constantly amazed by what I learn at this conference. There is no substitute for the insight and exposure you can gain just by attending."
Corporate Accounts Manager, BlueConic
SIPA helps me and my team transform what we do year in and year out. Whether it's discovering new ways to transform ideas we've heard about into "monetizable" product and practice, or it's meeting contacts that can help us grow our programs and drive us to make lucrative decisions in new areas of our journalism. SIPA brings together folks seeking to make the change necessary to help our business thrive in this fast-evolving marketplace."
Director of Programming, Live & Virtual Events, Editorial Projects in Education, Inc.
We are looking for new ideas and activities for our specialized publishing company. The conference was filled with sessions and people that presented them clearly and gave me almost too many directions we can head. Highlight is hearing an idea or activity another company is doing and realizing we can do that without a huge amount of extra effort, time, and expense."
Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder, myStockOptions.com
As an attendee at many different conferences over the years, I can say that SIPA's was one of the best-run. Great speakers, relevant topics, very useful mobile app, along with solid control of the clock and basic logistics."
New Generation Research Inc.
There is no better place to network than at the SIPA annual conference. There's a phenomenal amount of sharing that goes on, in the sessions and in the hallways, where you're swapping success stories and cautionary tales with long-time colleagues and folks you've just met. No other conference offers the candor and openess that this event provides."
