Speaking proposal deadline extended to 3 October: Submit today!

The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) is accepting break-out session speaking proposals for its 2017 World Conference in Washington D.C., 11–14 June 2017. Our audience of communication professionals seeks dynamic speakers who offer new, innovative and career-supporting knowledge and skills.

The 2017 conference theme is #IABC17 Global Business: Lead Communication—Make Real Impact. We seek presentations that:

  • Focus on leading communication that makes a real impact in our organizations;
  • Build on the best of what we’ve learned about outstanding communication;
  • Aim high to capture the newest knowledge and ideas in the profession;
  • Lead innovations on how to reinvent our communication practice;
  • Offer new tools and techniques that foster innovation.

Speaking proposals are reviewed by IABC’s Program Advisory Committee (PAC). Invitations/notifications will be sent to candidates in late November and early December. Participating in the conference provides speakers with the opportunity to be recognized as a subject matter experts in front of more than 1,000 communication professionals from around the world. If you can engage, inspire and inform audiences, we’d like to hear from you!
