IMC Connect! is an event designed to bring together some of the nation’s top communications
executives and leading researchers to campus. Its purpose is to provide various opportunities
for attendees to learn from expert practitioners throughout a series of collaborative events.

This series of events include workshops, topical panel sessions and breakout sessions. The
lineup of guest speakers and panelists allow faculty and students the chance to network and
contribute in discussions involving leading trends in integrated marketing communications.

At IMC Connect! attendees can contribute in discussion topics such as: maximizing messages on
both social and traditional media channels, 5-minute findings of hottest topics in IMC, crisis
communication and corporate reputation management and sharing success stories from IMC

At last year’s event, guests heard from big-name company representatives such as Home
Depot, Chick-Fil-A, FedEx, Carnival Cruise Lines, and KQ Communications and communication
