Northern Conference is back for 2018. Hosted in Newcastle by CIPR North East, with support from its colleagues at CIPR North West and CIPR Yorkshire & Lincolnshire, the event is set to be bigger and better than ever before.

Taking place on Friday 13th July 2018 at the Crowne Plaza in Newcastle, the event will follow the exciting theme of PR: The Art and Science of Engagement. With headline speakers, breakout sessions and workshops, as well as panel debates and emerging tech presentations, followed by drinks receptions and networking opportunities, Northern Conference is a must-do for any PR practitioner.

Exploring the relationship between the art and science of engagement, delegates will learn from industry experts about psychology and how the brain works when it comes to the art of influence and everything in between to the other end of the scale, with sessions looking at creativity and how to train your brain to become more imaginative with your campaigns.

Open to both members of the CIPR and non-members too, Northern Conference is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in town this summer and is set to sell out fast. Don’t forget, if you’re engaged with the CIPR’s Continuing Professional Development scheme, being part of the action at Northern Conference will bag you 10 CPD points too.

Plus, if that wasn’t exciting enough, even more reason to come to Newcastle this summer is the Great Exhibition of the North. A celebration of the region’s industrial and technological history while looking forward to the future, the Exhibition promises to see a summer of amazing exhibits, inspired technology, vibrant street performance and cutting edge culture.

So, if you’re heading this way for Northern Conference, why not make a whole weekend of it in Newcastle?
