If you’ve not yet signed up to come to IABC’s World Conference this year, happening in San Francisco, 14-17 June, here are five reasons to sign up:
- We have over 60 sessions from speakers from all over the world, including Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Ireland, India, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Africa, Switzerland, Thailand, the U.K., the U.S. and Venezuela.
- The sessions are structured so you can choose from four career levels, for your specific professional needs.
- You’ll get a unique opportunity to network with global peers; last year’s attendees came from some 40 countries.
- Topics are of critical relevance to the success and survival of organizations everywhere, with topics across the entire communications discipline.
- It’s San Francisco in June. What could be better than that?
Put all of that in the business case to your boss. Well, the first four anyway.
But what about the venue? Visting San Francisco means you can:
- Ride the city’s beautiful streets on a cable car.
- Explore the neighborhoods, each with its own soul and personality, from the hippie roots of the Upper Height to the hipster heart of the Mission.
- After art and culture? San Francisco is host to a variety of festivals, museums, theaters, dance performances and more.
And on top of this, what makes IABC’s World Conference the most important conference for communication professionals is the extra something that comes on top of the stellar program and exciting city.
The programme is, and always has been, beyond comparison to any other conference. IABC simply brings together the top names in the communication profession every year.
I believe it gives some of the best professional development opportunities available. Whether you’re new to the communication field or not, there’s always something to learn.
Those of you who’ve experienced it know what I’m talking about. For those of you who haven’t, I encourage you to come and discover.
Join me in San Francisco in June. Register here.
