The IABC Heritage Region is currently seeking speakers for the 2017 Regional Conference being held November 5-7 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh. The conference will consist of approximately twenty 75-minute breakout sessions and in-depth 3-hour sessions on key topics affecting today’s business communicators. It is anticipated the conference will draw around 150-200 communicators from the Northeast and Midwest United States as well as Canada.

The following is the link for the 2017 Heritage Conference Speaker RFP for anyone interested in making a presentation at the 2017 IABC Heritage Region Conference. The deadline IABC Heritage Region speaker submissions has been extended to Friday, March 17. Highly interactive sessions and case studies are in great demand by our audience, therefore proposals that focus on either of these topics may increase the likelihood of being selected for a speaking slot.
