Attention GA Companies... It's TIME To Get Your News To ANN!
The 2010 rendition of AEA's
annual Tradxe Show and Convention is but 20 days away,
and, if history is any indicator, it's likely those of you in the
GA sector may have some news/announcements to make.
The Aero-News Network, the aviation world's DAILY/REAL-TIME news
and information service, will sport an expert assemblage of ANN's
top journalists. Several staffers, including ANN
Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell, News Editor Tom Patton and
E-Media producer Paul Plack, have been assigned to
generate dozens of stories about the event, and to work on many
more for future distribution to the hundreds of thousands of people
(all over the world) who read, view or listen to ANN every day, as
well as the many International syndication partners we work
And, of course, this year will be particularly noteworthy with
the addition of
ANN's new Aero-Streaming programs!
'Want to make a timely impact?
As usual; ANN's team of expert aero-journalists will be covering
the event from top to bottom; and we'd like to let you lead the
news, with your announcements in Aero-News on the day your news
breaks, rather than a day late. We're inviting you to send your
advance news and announcements to us; with the date (and the time
-- Eastern Time -- if critical) you plan to release the
information. Our news publication system can be set to release
stories within a second of a scheduled release time, so we can
honor embargo agreements with uncanny accuracy (and yes, unlike a
number of other so-called news services, we keep our word and
honor agreed embargo requests). This way, we can help you
reach the largest number of potential readers, as fast as
We would like to invite you to submit your press materials and
news packages to us prior to the start of the event in order to
allow our team to do as much advance preparation as possible and to
get a feel for the stories that will be prominent this year. The
sooner we get such data, the more we can do with it, and the more
likely it is that you'll find yourself featured in a future ANN
newscast, Audio Aero-Cast or Aero-TV Webcast. Submissions are
strongly encouraged by E-mail though postal "snail mail" is
acceptable so long as it is received in our office ASAP. No
aviation entity currently gets to as many people, every day, as ANN
is doing now, so we encourage you to get in contact with us if you
think you might have a story idea or a subject worth covering.
If you have any story ideas or suggestions as to how we might
augment our coverage of this event, please be sure to bring it to
our attention ASAP, so that we make the proper assignments for
ANN's Special Event coverage has been a distinguishing feature
of our organization since DAY ONE. No one does as much with special
coverage of aviation's pivotal events as ANN, and we continue to
set the bar higher each time we tackle an event. It's a tough,
exhausting, brutally intensive process -- and read by hundreds of
thousands of Aero-News readers all over the world.
Of special interest, this year, is the continuation and
upgrading of ANN's tremendously popular Aero-TV programming. As you
may know, ANN introduced the aviation world to Aero-TV at
AirVenture 2007 -- and the business hasn't been quite the same
since. Since then, HUNDREDS of DAILY Aero-TV news and feature
programs have been disseminated to the world through nearly 100
syndication partners worldwide… resulting in MILLIONS of
Video views and downloads throughout the globe.
If you want concrete proof of the power of Aero-TV Special Event
programming, you have only to look over the work our teams did at a
number of other special events. NO OTHER news organization offers
the hundreds of online and syndicated stories, news-feeds,
Aero-Casts (audio) or Aero-TV programming that ANN produced and NO
ONE offered near the quality of product our teams produced.
Look over our programming carefully… each episode
is produced by journalists with solid reporting credentials,
steadfast ethical standards, extraordinary expertise and completed
to the highest standards seen in the aviation journalism
industry… bar none. These Aero-Video products can be played
on your laptop or PC as well as downloaded to a Video iPod, PDA (or
other video device) for viewing at a later time.
Once again, please remember that ANN's Aero-TV Aero-Casts are
HIGH-QUALITY video products shot in HDV (no kidding, see for
yourself at http://www.aero-tv.net), and produced by
expert aviation and video journalists -- if YOU are going to be
seen, featured or interviewed by anyone in the aviation world to
best effect, make sure that you are dealing with the Aero-News or
