What sets BEA apart from other conferences is our ability to bring in numerous industry professionals. Each year you will find an assortment of people from the newsrooms to studio lots, and from research labs to corporate board rooms. BEA prides it self on being the intersection of academia and industry.


We know how important networking is at a conference and opportunities are plentiful for faculty looking for advice on tenure and promotion or assessment tools, junior faculty looking to connect with senior scholars for research opportunities and professors interested in connecting with industry professionals.
