The drums are beating. Now is the time to make sure your career is on the road to greater success! Step into a positive rhythm with us and make plans now to gather in Richmond, VA, for the 2018 IABC Heritage Region Conference November 11-13, 2018.
For the past 400 years, Richmond has been a pivotal location in U.S. history. This November you can write your own history in Richmond by taking a pivotal career step. Rally with 200 professional communicators from the U.S. and Canada who will throw away career doldrums and share new ideas at this year’s conference!
Richmond is steeped in history, but more recent revolutions in craft beer, food, fashion and the arts have led to Richmond’s being named a Travel + Leisure Top Destination. National Geographic has also designated Richmond to be a terrific place for foodies.
At this year’s conference you can engage in outstanding sessions. Plan to enjoy seminal presentations by a range of exceptional speakers sharing the latest effective communication techniques as you network with the industry’s best practitioners. And you can catch the revolutionary spirit through keynote sessions, breakouts and dining activities geared specifically to communication, public relations and marketing professionals.
The International Association of Business Communicators is a vibrant global association with members from around the world, representing many of the Global Fortune 500 companies. At the international, regional and local level, we support our community of professionals with innovative thinking, shared best practices, in-depth learning, and career guidance.
