TECHCON CALL FOR SESSION PROPOSALS: With the many technological advancements happening in the media industry, public media professionals have a crucial need to learn, network, and share ideas. To that end, we’re delighted to kick-off planning for the 2017 PBS Technology Conference (aka TechCon) and need your input and assistance.
As in years past, we hope to develop another top-notch agenda designed to educate and inform anyone in public media using technology to serve an audience. To help guide your thinking, the TechCon audience is made up of professionals from the following areas of public broadcasting: Broadcast, Digital, I.T., and Traffic. TechCon attendees tell us they are eager to learn in sessions and workshops that are:

  • Educational;
  • Hands-on; and
  • Technical or in-depth.

We invite your ideas for sessions tailored to colleagues in Broadcast, Digital, I.T., and Traffic and ideas for multi-disciplinary discussions that would be of interest to all attendees. A list of topics suggested by our attendees is posted on our website here:
