2023 North American Conference
Registration is still open for IAP2 North American Conference, September 13-15, 2023 at the Sheraton Grand, Seattle Washington.
The IAP2 North American Conference is the top industry event for P2 practitioners in the US and Canada. Conference attendees and presenters are diverse, welcoming, and from a wide range of backgrounds.
This year’s conference theme, "Partnering for Possibility", is about coming together in authentic and creative ways. It's about what can happen when equitable engagement is shared, valued, and celebrated. It's about taking chances and believing in people, processes, and opportunities. The theme reflects a critical moment in time, as we are actively recovering from a multi-year pandemic and adapting our approaches to public engagement in the context of racial reckoning and reconciliation.
The preliminary agenda is now available and includes plenty of time for networking and conversations. It is important to remember that much of our learning at conferences goes on in the hallways between sessions and at social events. You can often discover answers to your biggest challenges while talking to your peers. Take advantage of the time to learn from your colleagues as well as our notable keynotes who will be announced next week. Be prepared to be inspired by storytelling, galvanized for social impact, and energized by adding creativity and play to your community engagement.
Sponsorship Opportunities are available.
