AHP Equine Media Conference

What is the AHP Equine Media Conference?

American Horse Publications (AHP) has held an annual conference for its members since the early 70s. The three-day equine media event is jam-packed with educational sessions, special events, and the announcement of the AHP Equine Media Awards.

Sessions cover publishing, journalism, revenue building, marketing, professional development, and much more. The conference is the number one place in the equine industry to network with equine media and members of AHP.

Who attends?

The AHP Equine Media Conference is a members-only event. Attendees include equine media professionals, publishers, equine-related businesses and organizations, and students.

It's an opportunity to connect with professionals in the equine media industry in both a casual and professional environment. Not only do members have a chance to renew relationships, but they also exchange fresh ideas and make key contacts.

If you are a professional freelancer, media publisher, or an equine-related business, consider attending the 2020 AHP Equine Media Conference in Lexington, Kentucky on May 28-30. Join AHP to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Where and when?

The annual event rotates throughout the US. In 2020, AHP celebrates its 50th anniversary at the AHP Equine Media Conference to be held at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Kentucky on May 28-30.

Why attend?

Here is what our attendees had to say about their conference experiences...

"The AHP Conference is essential for our pulse on the industry, learning what the horse folks want and need, and how the face of media changes from year to year!”   

BETH BERDOFE WHITE, Director of Public Relations, Straight Arrow Products, Inc. (Business Member)

“Hearing from people who DO what you do--and who've wrestled with the problems, known the satisfactions, and kept their "eyes on the prize" is great--especially for a freelancer who spends most of her time with phone, recorder, and computer.”

DEB LYONS, Freelancer (Individual Member)

“Year after year, the AHP Equine Media Conference is the best bang for my buck when it comes to choosing a continuing education avenue. Each year I've attended the conference, I've seen the assignments resulting from attending more than pay for the cost of the trip.”

ABIGAIL BOATWRIGHT, Freelancer (Individual Member)

“If you are serious about a career in equine media or marketing, then the AHP conference is a must-attend. Whether you're a student exploring your options, a young professional, or a seasoned veteran, there's something for you. You'll make contacts -- and friends -- who will be there for you for years to come. Plus, the AHP conference is the best value in the publishing industry. Don't miss it.”

JENNIFER BRYANT, Editor, USDF Connection (Publishing Media Member)

 “The value of this conference is huge with respect to networking and educational opportunities for furthering individual professional development. It gives all media the chance to meet the people that write for them, as well as enjoying the recognition of peers during the awards ceremony.”

SABINE SCHLEESE, Schleese Saddlery (Business Member)

“As someone in sales, the networking is phenomenal and topics gave me a lot to take home and build from. I go every year looking for that one connection and this year there are too many to count.”
