Ideas fresh off the wire

Tech Reporters Talk ‘Off-the-Record’ about Securing Media Coverage

Pitch Advice from Fortune, Forbes, Recode and more

Ever wonder why your company or client’s big announcement didn’t make the news? Highwire NYC is hosting a media panel, Off the Record: Media Talk Tech” in partnership with Norwest Venture Partners and Button next Tuesday, June 20, at Interface NYC — putting some of tech’s most sought after journalists in the hot seat with this and other burning questions. While it’s been anecdotally known that coverage priorities have shifted, you will leave this event with the data and insights on how to best approach the media.

Come join fellow PR, marketing and startup executives to learn what you need to know to compose a compelling pitch. The New York journalists will also be talking about the city’s growing startup scene and which areas of tech are most established and on the rise.

Our panel lineup will include:

  • Forbes / Alex Konrad, Technology Reporter
  • Fortune / Polina Marinova, Associate Editor
  • Recode / Jason Del Rey, Senior Editor
  • Fast Company / Ruth Reader, Reporter
  • Button / Mike Dudas, Co-founder and CRO (moderator)

Tickets cost $10 and all proceeds for the event will be donated to New York on Tech, which works with local schools, students and parents to create pathways for underrepresented students in technology. There is still time to register, just check out the event page here.
