“Unlike a lot of conferences, GWADS was not about how we are dying. It was about how we are transforming and getting stronger.”

"I left the conference feeling equipped with new strategies for success."

The Great Western Audience Development Summit is the place to Learn, Connect and Drive Change. This vibrant annual event represents news media companies from around the country.
