Six additional “Best of 2022” on-demand sessions will feature popular sessions recorded in 2022, including keynotes by Ed Stetzer, Jen Bennett, and Erick Goss.

DigitalMediaCon was introduced in 2020 as a virtual alternative to EPA’s annual convention. It has since become an annual event that has drawn the interest and participation of a number of other Christian media organizations, including the National Association of Evangelicals which serves as co-presenter with EPA.

The conference spans three days with five live sessions per day.

Registration for EPA members is $99. A special group plan allows up to 10 to register for the cost of just four.
