IABC issues Call for Presentations for 2015 World Conference

In anticipation of the 2015 IABC World Conference June 14-17 in San Francisco, IABC is opening up its Call for Presentations. You can submit your outstanding presentation here before September 30.

With this year’s theme, Changing the Landscape: Informing the future, IABC will explore new ways of approaching communication with some of the most innovative thinkers and visionary leaders of our time. This is the kind of event that will leave participants feeling invigorated, enlightened and immersed in a new sense of what’s possible. Meaningful dialogue and tangible takeaways will equip participants with inspiration and knowledge now and into the future.

Each year, the IABC World Conference reexamines and reinvents what it means to be a communication professional—and that’s where you come in. If you are looking to share your next-level thinking on a global stage with over 1,200 in attendance, this is your chance.
