More great things people are saying…

Congratulations on a superb event – on all counts….a  sense of ENJOYMENT – personal and professional!

The level of personal hospitality was very memorable. 

One of the lessons from the event – in addition to open and honest communication – was that communications experts are very good communicators!

Top 5 Reasons to Attend

  1. Rich Content from Expert Insight – Learn emerging crisis communication practices from the cream-of-the-crop we invite as they share tried and true information from lessons learned, the latest research and an open exchange of ideas. The number one compliment we get every year is about the rich content we deliver.
  2. Networking Playground – You will be surrounded by a wealth of experience and knowledge! After most conferences you come home with a pocket full of business cards. At the ICRC Conference, you return with long lasting business relationships. We purposefully cultivate a smaller, interactive atmosphere that has you sitting with the experts and exchanging meaningful, open dialogue. Tying with the rich content, networking is also the most mentioned positive feedback the ICRC Conference receives. Come see why before all the seats are taken!
  3. Latest Media Strategies – From Social to Traditional, case study research exposes the latest dos, don’ts  and trends. All presentations are followed by hot topic discussions where all participants are encouraged to give their viewpoint and expert advice. Be prepared. Friendly debate can spark at any time!
  4. Be the Best Practice! – Obtain the most up to date, best practices for real world application and share some of your own! Bring your plans and gap analysis in order to collaborate on ideas and other’s experiences in our facilitated Lunch and Learns. Plus, during the conference we will be documenting the best practices favored throughout and will send these to each attendee.
  5. Orlando, Florida! – Enjoy the world’s favorite vacation spot with 77°F/24°C temperatures in March! The University of Central Florida is “centrally” located to many of the attractions. Travel by car 45 minutes to the West and you will find Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and many other popular theme park attractions. If you travel 45 minutes to the East, you will find the Kennedy Space Center and the National Cape Canaveral Seashore where you can lounge on the beach and search for seashells and sea glass. You can’t shovel sunshine so come to the conference and extend your stay to enjoy many of our world class attractions.
