The holiday season is now upon us, and along with all of the snow and hot chocolate comes the task of finding the perfect present to give. Socks and gift cards are always a safe option, but providing somebody the opportunity to attend an event that will benefit their future career is the gift that just keeps on giving.
As a young business professional, there’s nothing more advantageous than attending a PRSSA National event. This year’s regional conference in Grand Rapids is the perfect opportunity to meet professionals, build connections, and enhance your skills in public relations, marketing, communication and more. Regional conferences are smaller than many national events, so attendees are still able to reap all the benefits while enjoying a more relaxed, intimate setting. The benefits of attending regional conferences are endless; not only can you broaden your network and meet potential employers, but you also get the opportunity to attend agency tours, participate in case study competitions, and get hands-on experience in the local industry.
However, experiencing a regional conference in Grand Rapids offers more than just professional opportunities. Downtown GR is home to over 100 amazing restaurants and bars, all available to explore after each day of the conference. The city didn’t earn the title of “Beer City, USA” for nothing, after all. Grand Rapids offers a stimulating mix of art, culture, and creativity, as well as an impressive nightlife scene. As if that’s not enough of an incentive to attend, those who register for Generation Grand: Experience PR in GR before January 1st enjoy “early bird” registration pricing of $45.00 for the entire three-day conference.
Attending a regional conference can enhance your career and personal life in more ways than one, and providing that experience for somebody else is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays this year.
