Sponsor at the Great Western Audience Development Summit

Now more than ever, your support matters. But we commit to making this a two-way street. GWADS delivers the audience of news media professionals who want to hear from you.

This vibrant annual event represents newsmedia decision-makers from around the country. Fully engaged participants attend because of the powerful speaker line-up, the networking time with peers, and the opportunity to meet and get ideas from trusted business partners.

"...a Do Not Miss event.  By far, the most substantive, informative and collegial gathering of any group across the country."
     -- Rick Hively, Wilson Gregory

"WOW!!   Each year the program is outstanding and the networking opportunities are fantastic."
     -- Jim Smith, Steel City

"The program and the opportunities to connect with clients and colleagues are unmatched. It is a must attend."
     -- Pat Dennis, The Pisa Group

"The Great Western Audience Development Summit is the leading Audience conference in the entire United States. It's stronger than any conference I've been to."
     -- Evan Mecak, Inka Solutions
