Apply to speak at the 2018 IABC World Conference in Montréal


The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) is now accepting speaker submissions for its 2018 World Conference in Montréal, happening 3–6 June 2018. This includes break-out speaking proposals, keynote applications/recommendations and IABC Fellows Circles of Wisdom group mentoring submissions. Proposals are due by 11:59 p.m., PDT, on 2 October. 

Our theme this year is The Communication Crossroads. The communication profession is uniquely positioned at the intersection of business, culture, functions and audience. That’s a powerful place to be. Across our programming, we want attendees to:

  • Learn how communication drives business performance and innovation.
  • Explore the rise of transformative communication and collaboration.
  • Discover the role they play at the center of culture and ethics.
  • Strengthen knowledge and confidence as a strategic adviser.

If you have ideas to contribute in these areas, we want to hear from you! This could be through sharing your knowledge, helping to build the communication professional’s skill set and/or showing innovative approaches to solving business challenges. It is the first time World Conference has been hosted in Montréal since 1984, and it’s going to be a very special event.
