Mission Statement

Staton Media exists to secure a relationship between qualified commercial printing plants and Show Daily publishers.

We do this by representing hundreds of Show Daily titles. This allows each individual title mass buying power in absolutely any convention destination. We commit to prioritizing a publisher’s expectations with a printer’s ability so both are confident about achieving the same goal.

Staton Media’s ShowDaily TV™ exists to convey industry-specific information subsidized by an advertising base of relevant businesses.

We do this by creating a custom newscast for tradeshows and special events enabling exhibitors, attendees, and even non-attendees to have immediate access to newly released information. Staton Media values the role technology plays in the flow of information and commits to providing innovative solutions in order to maintain relevancy in the information exchange between advertiser and audience.
