Situated on the banks of Lake Hamilton in the Spa City, the Clarion offers an ideal venue for the annual conference where among other things the 2017 Better Newspaper Advertising Contest awards will be presented. That will take place at the Friday luncheon in the top floor ballroom of the Clarion. Ryan Dohrn, creator of the 360 Ad Sales Training System, will be the featured presenter at the conference. Ryan will bring his “mission critical” ad sales training designed specifically for media sales Thursday afternoon. Other popular standing features of the ad conference will return, including the “hot ideas” exchange over breakfast Friday morning and round table discussions to address challenges and opportunities for newspaper advertising people in the year ahead.
