STC’s Technical Communication Summit uses six tracks to organize the more than 100 sessions. The content will expand your professional knowledge, brief you on new tools and technology, and provide you with strategies that will help you navigate the turbulence of today’s workplace. In addition, there are plenty of opportunities scheduled to facilitate your networking with colleagues and friends.
Visit the STC website to view the entire conference’s list of titles, speakers, and descriptions in a PDF or on STC’s Live Learning Center. The data in the Center is updated frequently as more details about the conference are confirmed.
The Summit is STC’s 56th annual conference, which will be held 3–6 May at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta with room rates of $174 (US) for single or double occupancy. These rates are 21 percent lower than last year’s conference. And rail transportation direct from the airport’s baggage claim area to the hotel is less than $2, making this one of the most affordable and convenient meetings in recent years.
STC Members save $300 using the early bird registration rate compared to nonmember onsite rates.
NEW THIS YEAR: STC will capture the content (audio and visuals) of almost every session and make it available to attendees at no additional cost. “This will increase the value of the attendee’s experience enormously,” promises STC President Mark Clifford. After the conference, STC will sync the audio with the presentations and make them available (by passcode on the STC website) to attendees. The resulting product will be called SUMMIT@aClick and will allow attendees to reap the benefits of more than 100 sessions at their convenience. STC’s Summit is the only meeting in the technical communication field that offers this added bonus.
