2019 PRSA Charlotte Communications Symposium

The annual Communications Symposium is PRSA Charlotte's signature event, and 2019 will be our biggest yet. Hosted at The Ritz-Carlton in uptown Charlotte on April 25, this half-day event will bring more high-profile speakers, more breakout sessions and more topics that target more groups from new pros to seasoned veterans.

Each year, the PRSA Charlotte Communications Symposium brings together hundreds of communications professionals from the Carolinas and beyond to discover the latest trends, effective tactics and proven strategies across all aspects of professional communications. This year's featured speakers include:
  • PR influencer and digital correspondent Sarah Evans (@PRSarahEvans) who will bring us insights into the future of our profession and the state of PR in 2019
  • Chris Chiames (@chrischiames), Chief Communications Officer of Carnival Cruise Lines, who will share an inside look at managing misinformation and viral content in the media
The 2019 PRSA Charlotte Communications Symposium will have eight engaging breakout sessions in which you can:
  • Quickly become a pro at live social media
  • Discover how to write headlines and copy that are inclusive of all people
  • Explore ways to reinvent your press releases to meet the needs of today's journalists
  • Hear how the best in the biz are measuring internal communications
  • Discover how to manage local crises that gain national attention
  • And more!
