2022 Virtual Press Office and Media Services

This year, Pipeline magazine will be upgrading the press office with an expanded and direct reach to technology decision makers from within the SCTE audience and Pipeline’s global audience. Legacy wire services distribute your news to mostly broadcast and newspaper media points where journalists have to be on specific topical assignments to cover your news, leading to a high degree of fall out. This year, your complete news will be directly distributed to the attendees of the event; to key technology decision makers from within Pipeline’s global audience; top stories will be featured in the Digital Show Daily, and all news will be featured on Pipeline magazine’s homepage in its news ticker, news center, and include a dedicated, full press release page. Pipeline is also a certified Google News source to amplify the visibility of your news across the web. For more information about the Virtual Press Office, Online Press Kits, and other event media services contact Pipeline, email sales@pipelinepub.com, call +1 734 707 4988 x120, or automatically schedule an event discussion with Pipeline to explore opportunities by clicking here.
