What Attendees Say About the Small Market Television Exchange...

  • SMTE is the most valuable conference we attend. Over the years, we consistently turn at least three ideas into big money each year. I highly recommend SMTE!

  • The NAB Small Market Television Exchange is by far the most valuable conference we attend every year. The presentations and panels are spot on. The schedule is well designed to make sure you are getting the most for your time and money. I would recommend this to anyone in the television industry.

  • Even after attending SMTE for a dozen years, it never gets old. The staff does a phenomenal job lining up a fantastic slate of presenters dealing with timely topics. I really appreciate being introduced to new products to help our sales efforts and love reconnecting with old friends. SMTE is always worth the investment.

  • By far, SMTE is the supreme place to be for the exchange of sales promotion ideas that work for our advertisers. I know of no other place to engage with so many broadcast professionals, whether they are attendees, exhibitors or presenters.

  • SMTE is the smartest investment in my station's sales success each year. Great ideas and insights are EASY to find at the conference. I learn as much from other attendees at the conference as I do from the conference itself. I would look for other expenses to cut from my budget before I cut SMTE. It's not a budget expense, it's an investment.

  • I have been coming to SMTE for over 20 years. It is the highlight of my year and something I always look forward to. The ideas are always outstanding, and it's the only event I can go back to my station and make money right away.
