Virtual World Conference

Virtual Sessions are provided by INXPO.

The World Conference happened on 11–14 June 2017, but you can still join IABC’s first Virtual World Conference, an online companion to the in-person event. You’ll be able to access some of the best break-out sessions, all without leaving the office. The sessions included in this event were hand-selected by IABC’s Program Advisory Committee. They took great care to provide you with an assortment of offerings.

Here’s what you get

The 2017 Virtual World Conference includes:

  • Five Virtual Sessions selected by IABC’s Program Advisory Committee.
  • The opportunity to apply credits toward professional certification. Learn more.
  • A bonus session from INXPO, our virtual event provider.

And, there are some great options for connecting with your peers:

  • Group Chat—Discuss ideas with other virtual conference attendees
  • Twitter—Engage on social media directly from the virtual conference
  • Network Lounge—Connect with your peers in the IABC Lounge

This is a way to access part of the World Conference without going anywhere!
