To round out the holiday break, our first Special Edition newsletter is focused on upcoming events. Regular programming resumes tomorrow, Tuesday, December 3.
This season of giving we’re offering a longer-than-usual period before event registrations go up. This Cyber Monday is the last day of lowest cost to secure both Evolutions in LA this February and PM 20 in Dallas this August. Ticket prices will increase tonight.
This year is special for PM — we’re putting on two conferences for the first time ever. Whether you’re a podcasting beginner, an industry veteran, or simply interested in the powerful growth of audio, we have the right event for you. Read about both and join us in making history. We can’t wait to see you!sale-abrate
The iconic Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles will be the location of Evolutions in just a few months. We’re excited to share this sophisticated, timeless setting with all who come to visit.
Since its grand opening in 1923, the hotel’s Beaux-Arts architecture has attracted landmark events. John F. Kennedy delivered his acceptance speech as the nominee of the the 1960 Democratic National Convention, with his campaign headquarters set up in the Music Room, now the Lobby.
Seen in cinema from Chinatown to Ghostbusters and on the small screen in shows like Mad Men, the Biltmore is a film-lover’s dream. It was even the founding place and early home to the Academy Awards ceremonies.
The hotel’s rich history and intricate design will be on full display February 12 – 15, 2020. We’ve secured special rates, so be sure to book your room before space sells out.past & future
Are you a fan of art? The Hilton Anatole in Dallas, home of Podcast Movement 2020, is filled to the top with it — literally. Over 1,000 objects, including many pieces from the Crow Collection of Asian Art and two painted sections of the Berlin Wall, are located throughout the resort.
In the central atrium, the colossal Nebula hangs 50 feet in the air. Built in 2010, the kinetic sculpture is made of aircraft cable, pulleys, and amber crystal. Historic and modern structures nearer eye level are on display along the Anatole’s one-mile art walk.
Anatole booking is now open for August, so be sure to book your stay with our special rates while available.get sm(art)
