2018 National Conference

March 18-20
Las Vegas, Nevada

Word-of-mouth marketing is all about giving people reasons to rave. For today’s community college marketers, it’s about promoting programs and services that are so amazing, people can’t help but share their experience with others. It’s about building a tight-knit social community. It’s about growing your reputation and brand so that your college stands out above the rest.

Las Vegas – an internationally renowned resort city with bright lights, big ideas and rave reviews of its own – provides the perfect backdrop for NCMPR’s 2018 national conference, where the focus will be on word of mouth marketing. Conference headquarters is The Tropicana, a casually elegant hotel on the Las Vegas Strip just minutes from the airport, convention centers and top entertainment venues.

Take a look at the CONFERENCE PROGRAM and mark the dates on your calendar. You don't want to miss NCMPR’s biggest professional development event of the year!
