The Virtual Ticket, PRX Stage and Jacobs Media Stage, and more!

Greetings PM Family,

August is here! Did you know that August 1 is…National Raspberry Cream Pie Day? We don’t have any pie for you in this newsletter, but the PM17 Virtual Ticket promises to be pretty sweet! If that slice of good news wasn’t enough… this week we also celebrate two partner stages that feature some of the top minds and talent in all of podcasting.


The Virtual Ticket is Live
Activate yours, or add it on, today!

Podcast Movement has always made the effort to allow PM community members from around the world to experience the event if they couldn’t be there in person. The Virtual Ticket has also served as a source of relief for attendees who choose to spend certain sessions networking in Podcast Movement Central, or of course because it’s impossible to attend every session.

Simply put: the Virtual Ticket is on-demand video and audio recordings of nearly every breakout, panel and keynote that takes place at PM. We’ve partnered with Revizzit again to bring you the ticket, which means you can access the VT from your desktop or mobile device anywhere, anytime!

The Virtual Ticket is an upgrade to registration this year, as opposed to coming with all passes, after many previous attendees requested we give an option to leave it off in exchange for more affordable registration rates.

Did you register for a PM17 Standard Pass?
We don’t want you to miss any of the sessions that you cannot make it to. You have the option to add the virtual pass to your existing registration now, for the exact same cost as if you’d registered for a Standard Plus originally. After the conference, the only option is to buy the VT as a standalone option. Click here to add the Virtual Ticket on now for the lowest cost.

This year the VT also includes bonus sessions that are only available digitally on the pass. And these are available immediately.


SPOTLIGHT STAGES

We’re excited to once again be partnering with our friends from PRX to bring you a day of sessions curated and presented by their team on August 23.

Some of the topics their sessions this year will focus on include audiosearch and discovery, how to pitch a brand on your show, podcast consistency, and more.

Featured speakers and panelists include Helen Zaltzman of The Allusionist, Lea Thau of Strangers , Nikki Silva of The Kitchen Sisters, and Radiotopia EP Julie Shapiro…plus nearly a dozen more.


For the first time, we’ve joined forces with the team at Jacobs Media to help bridge the gap between broadcasters and podcasters, as they present a full day of sessions August 24th.

The track, Broadcasters Meet Podcasters, will combine the energy and electricity of the podcasting space with the expertise, talent, and reach of the broadcasting world.

Don’t miss sessions that will appeal to attendees, no matter which side of the equation you fall, including discussions on why public radio excels at podcasting, how broadcasters can make money on podcasts, and the return of the podcast makeover!

This track is brought to you thanks in part to our partnership with Triton Digital and Omny Studio!

Whether you’re looking forward to the PRX track, the Jacobs track, or something entirely different, don’t forget to plan out your schedule on our website, or on our new mobile app!


PODCAST PAVILION

Every year we receive inquiries about podcasting at the event, and this year with the help of TalkShoe and Shure, we’re giving you a way!

The Podcast Pavilion gives you the perfect spot and setup, however slots are first come first serve, and are almost completely full. Today is the last day to reserve your spot!

The team at Podcast Movement has worked diligently over the last year to create even more opportunities for attendees. We want to ensure that your challenges and specific podcast questions will not only be answered, but if needed a specific plan of action can be put in place after PM concludes.

If you aren’t sure if Podcast Movement will address your podcast pain points… please send us an email. We will help you to determine which sessions, tracks and or small groups will put you in the best position for success. Email [email protected] and let us help you!


Next week we will share a new and exciting session from the sports category, let you know how you can pitch a sponsor for your show live and in person at PM17, and more tips for can’t miss PM activities.

Until Next Week,
Team PM17
