About the Media S.I.G.

The Media SIG is a sub-group of members that have publishing, media, broadcasting, advertising, entertainment and related industry experience. We have 3,000 members, with more than 50% being of an Alumni Status.

This is a GREAT OPPORTUNITY to "CONNECT" with FENG colleagues. We believe "CONNECTING" is more beneficial and far-reaching than "NETWORKING". Come have lunch and meet new business friends that share THE FENG BOND of SPONSORSHIP.
