AAN Web Publishing Conference 2012


DesertNet (Diamond Sponsor)
DesertNet has evolved with AAN publications' needs since 1995.

Beyond editorial content, we've streamlined and integrated everything from blogging, calendar listings and venue directories (music, dining, events, film times), to giveaways, polling, surveys, best of guides, special issues, multimedia, newsletters, social sharing, RSS, and import/export tools.

We continue to engage your readers with ever-growing community features such as comment ratings, reviewing, event reminders, Facebook login, mobile web, geo-location, app developer feeds, and more.

From the Dispatch publishing system of yesterday, to the Foundation system of today, the growth of our flexible Gyrobase platform and software has been driven by the feedback of hundreds of AAN publication staff.

We’re proud to be a part of the AAN community.
