Carl Landau sits down with us to discuss how to pull off a live niche event as a publisher, event promoter, or association.
Landau has over 30 years in the niche magazine sector, is a successful event promoter, and has launched and sold five national niche magazines. In 2000, he started Camp Niche, an advertising sales training program that helps publishers, advertising directors, and representatives increase their sales. He also hosts the Super Niche conference that helps small-to-medium-sized companies target customers correctly, and the Niche Digital Conference, which helps publishers increase online revenue.
