IPR Bridge—Public Relations and Communication Conference, is the first two-day conference geared toward both public relations and corporate communications practitioners and academics.

IPR Bridge allows academics to learn from senior-level executives, while having an opportunity to present their research at a peer-reviewed conference, and allows mid-to-senior-level executives to learn about the latest in public relations and communications research. A key feature of the conference is the opportunity to network and interact with top leaders in both the practice and the academy in a small setting (max of 125 attendees).
