Pre-registration for the 2020 IABC World Conference is now open for members only

We’re headed to Chicago for the 2020 IABC World Conference 14–17 June, and registration prices will never be lower than they are right now. But we recommend you act quickly.

Through 31 August, or until the limited supply of 150 pre-registration spots are filled, any active IABC member like you can get a standard registration for the 2020 IABC World Conference for $999.

This offer saves you more than $1,000 off the final conference registration cost for a non-member. And the value you’ll get back is even greater, including everything from inspiring keynote speakers and informative breakout sessions to networking events and fantastic meals to power you through your busy days and send you back home with experiences that will pay dividends for years.

As communication professionals, we are driven to create understanding. We analyze and plan. We organize, offer insight and inspire. We innovate and transform. We keep things human. We deliver. So, in an age of rapid change, how do we use our abilities to help our organizations to shift and get prepared for the future?

Join us as we explore this and more around our theme, “Shift: #AreYouReady,” at the 2020 IABC World Conference. Grab one of these 150 spots while you still can.
