Virtual Conference

Who will I meet at the conference?


Over the years we have had professionals from all over the industry come to speak and share their business experiences with attendees. We will be updating our Speakers Tab for a list of professionals who will be at the event. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to meet peers from all over the nation through the conference platform.




Will the conference be virtual this year?


Yes! The PR Advanced 2021 District Conference: Powered by Purpose will be all virtual.




Which online platform will the conference be held on?


The conference will take place on both Airmeet and Zoom platforms. On Airmeet, you will have the opportunity to connect with other attendees and the sponsors of our event at virtual tables. All speaker sessions will be held on Zoom in a classroom-style environment, so you can engage with the speaker and ask more questions. A digital workbook with the schedule and proper links will be sent to each participant.




Will there be networking opportunities at this virtual conference?


Yes! We know online conferences can be a lot, but with our Airmeet capabilities, you’ll be able to video call or chat with other attendees and speakers. You can also utilize the Slack channels we will have set up (links will be available in the workbook). This is a great way to form connections, share LinkedIn info, and stay in touch even after the conference. How can I get involved on the day of the conference? Be sure to follow PR Advanced on our social media platforms. We’ll be sharing updates throughout the day and encouraging you to share your conference experience with us. Your Instagram story might even get you entered into one of our giveaways!




What do I wear to a virtual conference?


Let’s be real, we’ve all worn our comfiest sweatpants with a blazer for a meeting at some point this year. We encourage you to dress comfortably for the conference while wearing a business casual or semi-formal shirt.




What should I bring to a virtual conference?


Be sure to have a fully charged laptop and functioning WiFi, our digital workbook either online or printed. A coffee and some snacks are a great addition to your desk space too. We can’t wait to see you there, and if you have any questions before the conference, please reach out on our social media or email our Conference Coordinator Jali at jalianag@bu.edu.
