Northampton, MA (July 3, 2012) – Myers Information Systems – a long-standing developer of broadcast traffic, business, and content management software – today announced the company will once again participate in the Public Media Development & Marketing Conference (PMDMC). This year’s gathering will be held in Seattle, Washington, July 12-14.
Myers, a conference exhibitor since 2003, joined DEI as a Partner in 2007. The DEI signature event draws more than 1,000 station, network, national organization, and associated business leaders to exchange ideas, learn new skills, and discuss issues related to public media marketing and revenue generation. While traditionally radio-focused, this year’s conference will debut a new track, created in partnership with PBS, specifically for public television fundraising professionals.
“We are thrilled to have Myers Information Systems at the PMDMC again this year,” said June Fox, director of station & business relations for DEI. “Their support for the conference and for public media stations around the country is a testament to Myers’ commitment to our industry.”
“This event gives us an opportunity to interact with our client stations’ development teams and demonstrate features and workflows within ProTrack TV / Radio that support their outreach efforts,” said Crist Myers, company CEO and president. “It also helps us identify requirements and new directions for future product development – we consider our affiliation with DEI an investment in the future of public media and look forward to participating in another successful conference.”
Myers’ highly regarded flagship suite, ProTrack, is available in both radio and television editions. It offers comprehensive scheduling and business management for individual, multichannel and multi-station facilities. Actively used by more than 226 media outlets, supporting more than 1,300 channels, ProTrack provides a high-level of structure and scalability, without sacrificing flexibility, for today’s rapidly evolving media environments.
