Continuing on almost 100 years of service to their core industries, 526 Media Group, Inc. announced today their newly launched 526 Events Virtual Event Platform.

Following years of personal attendance at over 100 industry events per year gathering key news, information and trend analysis, the organization noted a gap in the market.  “While nothing can replace the power of personal meetings and relationships in our industries, attendance is limited by those with the schedule and budget to attend.  We wanted to offer our partners the opportunity to bring their amazing content and experience to a larger audience,” noted President Patrick Adams.

The new platform is being offered to the industry’s leading trade associations as a way to present participation alternatives to their events during this challenging, and quickly changing environment.  Built using the most robust technology and servers available, the platform has the capability to mirror everything taking place at the live event from keynote speakers to educational workshops, board and committee meetings and of course, the tradeshow exhibit floor.

This key addition adds to 526 Media Group’s amazing arsenal of content, publications and digital resources that make them the leader in every industry they serve.  Trusted as the leading B2B media group specializing in the American Bedrock Infrastructure Industries (ABII) for almost 100 years, 526 Media Group’s mission of “Relentlessly Serving Working Class Heroes” has built an unrivaled credibility with both their readers and advertising clients.  “Unlike most media today, we operate thinking about the next 100 years and how we can best leverage our resources to help make those we serve successful.  Like the industries we serve, we believe in relationships and waking up everyday doing the best we can.  Simply put, nobody outworks our team,” said Adams.

526 Media Group is actively partnering with the industry’s leading associations to assure their events, which offer vital education and content to the industry, continue as planned regardless of world or local conditions.  For more information, contact Jody Bays at 526 Media Group,
