Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center
Exhibiting during Proclaim 18, the NRB International Christian Media Convention, places your company or ministry in front of thousands of decision-makers in an ever-growing industry.
Thousands of industry professionals will be in attendance, and exhibiting allows you face-to-face contact with radio and TV station owners and operators, video producers, radio and TV program producers, film producers, pastors and denominational leaders, law firms, broadcast CEOs, advertising agencies, travel companies, fundraisers, webmasters, donor software designers, experts in the areas of mobile and social media, podcasters, bloggers, and more.
Our desire is for each exhibitor to enjoy a positive experience by engaging quality attendees face-to-face as they network on the Exhibit Floor during all three days of the Exposition. To ensure you receive every advantage of the exhibiting experience, begin NOW to plan for Proclaim 18.
Also, as you plan for Proclaim 18, we want you to be aware that if an unauthorized outside agency attempts to contact you to offer assistance with room reservations, please do not make your hotel reservation through them.
Please be advised that such outside agencies do not represent NRB or the Gaylord Opryland Resort in any manner. The only authorized company that is contacting attendees and exhibitors on behalf of NRB is Palisades Convention Management.
