Why You Should Attend World Conference 2022

We are back together!

IABC is hosting its first in-person World Conference in three years and we have reimagined the experience. This year’s theme is “Communication Can ____” and we have designed an event to show how communication can deepen understanding, inspire action, and transform worlds.

The innovative aspects include:

  • Opening and closing keynotes with the Frank Shaw, VP of corporate comms at Microsoft and Lisa Osborne Ross, the CEO of Edelman in the US.
  • Three plenary sessions with senior communication and industry experts to stimulate thinking, seed conversation, and mobilize action.
  • Live Q&As with leading communication executives
  • A ‘Catalyst for Climate Design Sprint’ to help address one of the world’s most pressing issues
  • Over 70 learning and professional development sessions by experts from more than a dozen countries, from speedy Ignite talks, listening lounges, breakouts, panels, interactive workshops to deep dives.

This conference will showcase a diversity of thought, disciplines, people and geographies and is designed for all communication professionals, inside and outside of the IABC community, at every stage of their career.

IABC’s World Conference is for any communication professional wanting to advance in their career, help their colleagues through conversation or mentorship, and/or take action  with important social issues most relevant to the profession at this moment.

We hope to see you there!
