EuroComm 2018 – Call for speakers

The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) EMENA Region is accepting speaking proposals for its EuroComm Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, 9-10 April 2018.

The #EuroComm18 conference theme is Communication, Technology and Participation, and we are looking for dynamic speakers who can actively integrate all three facets of our theme into their presentations, speeches and workshops.

9 April will be a day of presentations, speeches and workshops, and 10 April will be an open space session where all participants will be able to lead sessions if they wish.

IABC is the largest global association for communication professionals with over 10,000 members. The annual EuroComm conference annually draws senior communicators from over 20 countries throughout the EMENA region. Our delegates – an audience of members and non-members alike – attend EuroComm for access to leading-edge knowledge and focused conversation that expands their skills and advances their careers.

This year, we are particularly keen to showcase innovative thinking in line with the theme from the Nordic Region, while at the same time, bringing top international communication speakers and presenters to the region from Europe, MENA, and beyond.

Participation in the conference provides speakers with the opportunity to gain visibility and recognition as a subject matter expert in front of influential business communication professionals from a wide variety of industries.
