The ICRC Conference Experience

"Great conference! The conference is run so well and is so enjoyable that I am going to submit to participate every year. Thanks for a great conference!"

"As a conference attendee for four years now, I've enjoyed seeing the conference grow and progress in many ways including recognition and attendance. It keeps better and better every year and I am enjoying the caliber and diversity of the plenary speakers. Keeping that in mind, one of the biggest values of this conference is the relatively small size that allows for true networking opportunities, especially among practitioners and academicians."

"The poster sessions were new this year and were a nice added touch."

"Overall ICRCC2017 was an excellent conference. It was a delight to see some of the world's most eminent Crisis and Risk Communication theorists on stage with senior practitioners, discussing real life issues - such as terrorist attacks and extreme weather events. It was also a delight to meet and interact with other up and coming academics and practitioners working at the leading edge of our field. The debate was rich and rewarding. I went home feeling energized and inspired."
