Meet Your Team

The original, still innovating


Since 1982, Ascend Media has been creating convention publications that support your community and engage attendees with the whole of your meeting.

We produce hundreds of projects each year – but not your grandfather’s show daily. Today’s modern publications are targeted, snackable and purposefully designed to move attendees through your meeting.

We can do it all – or just a little. From sales and marketing strategies and execution to content creation and production, we can provide as much – or as little – as you need.

Working with Ascend doesn’t have to be an expense line in your budget. Our sales team will grow your revenues to pay for amazing products at your meeting.
