The International Crisis and Risk Communication (ICRC) Conference affords attendees the rare opportunity to network with prominent crisis communication practitioners, leaders and researchers, in a relaxed setting. Not only will you have the opportunity to focus on networking during our off-site reception dinners and refreshment breaks, you can also expect to initiate and develop strong, inspiring professional relationships that may benefit you and your organization. Open participation and feedback are encouraged, within interactive sessions with like-minded peers, professionals and researchers in attendance.

The 2014 ICRC Conference featured a special appearance by then-Chairman of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, Ms. Deborah Hersman.  Citing her experience managing the 2013 Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crisis, Hersman spoke about the ubiquity of social media and resulting challenges for crisis communication management. (Ms. Hersman is now president and CEO of the National Safety Council.)


Each year the International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference brings together an exciting agenda of anticipated sessions and speakers, and attendees receive high value for their education and travel dollars. Our general and breakout sessions bring you a firsthand look at the most current topics in the field. We continue to bring in leading professionals and researchers to share their expertise in interactive case studies, in-depth panel discussions and useful, new and noteworthy sessions.
