SEJ's program books go to hundreds of reporters and others attending the conference, but it doesn't stop there. With SEJ's fundraising efforts, the books reach environmental media leaders for years after the conference is over. Advertisers are also listed on SEJ's website, along with independent reception hosts and exhibitors.

SEJ's conference attendees have been out on SEJ's all-day tours, and after a long day, they come back to your reception, ever ready to absorb more information. SEJ's attendees have come to love the Thursday night Independent Receptions (2016). See a more detailed list of 2016 receptions here.

Have press kits ready to hand out. Local beer is always a good draw. Even better than beer: bring along some experts to chat with attendees. 

Receptions will be held Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, from 5:00-9:00 p.m. (with tear down at midnight). Specs and fees are listed below. Reception areas are approximately 20' x 25' and are for Thurs. evening ONLY. Reception booths are approximately 10' x 15' and remain Thurs. evening until Sat. afternoon. Catering is not included in the room fee. Hosts will be sent catering information after space has been reserved.
