2014 Conclave Learning Conference Dates Announced
July 21, 2014

The 39th annual Conclave Learning Conference has been announced for November 14 & 15th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel & Suites, Airport-Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. For the first time ever, the Friday/Saturday Learning Conference will be held in partnership with the Minnesota Broadcasters Association.

The day-and-a-half event kicks off with a Radio & TV Career Fair and Air Check Clinic on Friday afternoon, November 14, followed by a special keynote from Emmis Communication’s President/CEO Jeff Smulyan on the NextRadio mobile platform. A reception concludes the first day of the combined MBA and Conclave Learning Conference.

Saturday, November 15 features three distinct tracks. The Programming and Talent Track will feature interactive sessions concentrating on programming emphasizing advanced talent development. The Management Track will focus on adapting to emerging digital platforms, improving management skills, and how to enhance employee recruitment and retention. Finally, the Sales Track will feature sessions covering everything from the basics to developing new digital revenue streams. Saturday highlights include a kick-off keynote, a unique luncheon, and a not-to-be-missed send-off cocktail reception to conclude the day.

A complete agenda will be available shortly on the Conclave website, http://www.theconclave.com.

“This will be a very unique Learning Conference, held in partnership with the MBA,” said Mark Bolke, Chairman of the Conclave Board. “We polled owners, managers, air-talent and industry leaders for their input on the best timing and necessary content for this event. Armed with that data we intend to continue the Conclave tradition of presenting a valuable, cutting-edge learning experience made deeper with the agenda input and partnership of the Minnesota Broadcast Association. Programmers, talent, sellers, managers, and future broadcasters will all benefit from this streamlined event.”

The introductory tuition for the 2014 Learning Conference is just $249 until August 31, 2014; the Conclave website is now hosting on-line registration for the event. When MBA registration begins on July 30, its members will receive a discounted tuition rate by contacting the MBA directly.

A limited number of specially priced Conclave sleeping rooms ($99 single/double) at the Crowne Plaza are available now via the Conclave website. Attendees may also secure a room directly through the Crowne Plaza, using the special code “CON” to receive a discounted room while supplies last.
