The Media Roundtable, one of the year’s most popular Tampa Bay area PR events, provides a unique opportunity to build relationships with and talk directly with local media contacts about how to work with them to generate press coverage. Jointly organized by the local chapters of PRSA and FPRA, the Media Roundtable is also a great chance to network with dozens of PR colleagues from both organizations.

The annual Media Roundtable program gives public relations professionals a rare chance to talk in person with typically hard-to-reach media contacts. Attendees talk with media professionals in person about how best to work with them – and increase chances of generating press coverage for companies and clients.

The format is fast moving and high energy, and provides plenty of insight that public relations professionals can take back to the office and use in working with the media. Each roundtable will have a media contact, and attendees at a specific roundtable will have about 10 minutes to introduce themselves, ask questions and build relationships. There’s a reason it is such a popular program: For PR professionals, it provides solid value.

Confirmed media representatives include:

  • Mitch Perry, Creative Loafing
  • Jeff Harrington, Tampa Bay Times
  • Kelly Barfield, LNS
  • Chris Taylor, Patch
  • John Romano, Tampa Bay Times
  • Orlando Nieves, CENTRO
  • Steve Versnick, WFLA Radio
  • Adrianne Pederson, WFLA TV
