Join us in Buffalo – home of the original Buffalo wings, a burgeoning craft beer scene and a short ride to Niagara Falls – for the 2018 PRSA Northeast District Conference, PRXNE18, on Friday, June 1, 2018. More than 200 public relations and communication professionals from the seven-state PRSA Northeast District are expected for this day-long conference packed with keynote presentations, case studies, panels, and more. You’ll also get to network with colleagues and hear from experts across the industry.
Hosted by the PRSA Buffalo Niagara chapter, this year’s conference has the theme of “Communication Convergence: The Integrated Communicator.” Marketing, social media, public relations, advertising – you do it all. Your role as a communicator is constantly evolving, the mediums we use to tell our stories are changing faster and the lines between these functions are even less clear. All while you’re expected to do so much more with much less.
We’re really looking forward to a day of inspiration with you, as nearly two dozen of our colleagues from throughout the Northeast present their best, most interesting, and practical recipes to help you foster Integrated Communication success wherever your work takes you.
Registration Deadline: May 25, 2018
The conference and overnight accommodations will be at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo, Two Fountain Plaza, Buffalo, NY 14202. Special conference hotel room rates are available until May 1, 2018 at this link: https://aws.passkey.com/go/PRS2018

If you haven’t seen Buffalo lately, you really haven’t seen Buffalo! It’s undergoing a 21st century renaissance that includes more than $1 billion in redevelopment, a revitalized waterfront and neighborhoods such as Canalside, craft beer scene and new attractions, restaurants, and hotels. And in nearby Niagara Falls, you can experience a natural wonder of the world, explore acres of pristine hiking trails and scenic terrain, and taste the goodness of orchards and award-winning wineries.
This will be a great opportunity to mix business and pleasure!
