SABEW picks Seattle for 2017 conference
The Society of American Business Editors and Writers will host its 2017 annual conference in Seattle, the organization announced Friday.
Associated Press business editor Lisa Gibbs and Beth Hunt of American City Business Journals will be the co-chairs of the conference, which will be held April 27 to April 29.
“We want to focus on themes of how all the emerging tools and platforms are reinventing storytelling as well as business models for our industry,” said Gibbs in an email to Talking Biz News. “What do we as business journalists need to do our jobs over the next five years? That’s the starting point for the conference.
“Also, we are determined to get some drones to fly!”
SABEW, which is based at Arizona State University, held its 2016 conference in Washington. It last held its annual conference in Seattle in 2004.
