The IABC World Conference is a long-standing, global professional development event designed for communication practitioners. The only major conference of its type, the event typically draws 1,000 attendees from around the world. Speakers are selected through a peer-reviewed process, with evaluations conducted by top experts in the field. Selections are based on alignment to the IABC Global Standard, and the degree to which the sessions will inform, engage and deliver on the conference theme.

The World Conference sessions will help you meet the application requirements for the Communication Management Professional (CMP) and Strategic Communication Management Professional (SCMP) certifications. And if you already have your certification through the Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC), those credits may be applied toward maintaining your certification.Learn more.
