Speed Pitching with the Media: Thursday, May 16

Every communications, marketing and public relations professional should be able to make a pitch in a quick and efficient manner. Next week, on Thursday, May 16, you can put yourself to the test.

Join us and the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field for Speed Pitching with the Media. 10+ journalists will be on hand to listen to your pitches in fast, one-on-one conversations.

What if you don’t have a pitch to make? You can still hit a home run by enjoying the networking and refreshments in the Winstrust Scout Lounge. Don’t miss the chance to be on-field for your stellar photo opportunity either. Some attendees from last year’s event have their photos displayed on their office walls and they definitely shared them across their content channels.
