The Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference will take place on September 8 and 9 of 2017 at the Holiday Inn Philadelphia in South-Swedesboro. You can purchase a ticket to the conference now through the Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference website.
The Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference (MAPCON) started in December of 2014 as a Facebook group for podcasters who live in the Mid-Atlantic States (North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut). After seeing the interest to have a podcast (exclusive) conference in the northeast, Joe Pardo jumped on the opportunity to make it happen. The first Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference was in 2015.
At the time I am writing this blog, MAPCON has not posted any specific information about the speakers, agenda, or other announcements. Those will be announced “soon”. Those who want to be the first to find out that information can sign up for conference updates with their email address.
There are two types of tickets for the Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference. One is for the physical “in real life” event. The other is a virtual ticket.
