2023 District 1 Conference

Nov. 2 - 4, 2023
Boston, MA


Wicked Good Stuff

Autumn in Boston is wicked awesome. Even in November, the city boasts some gorgeous fall foliage. With endless bistros, breweries, museums, historic sights, boutiques, and entertainment, there's something for everyone. Grab a cup of Dunks, hop on the T, and make way for ducklings at the 2023 District 1 Conference. 

Join with colleagues from across the Northeast to soak in all that Boston has to offer. We're excited to bring exciting sessions showcasing marketing and public relations best-practices as well as thoughtful exploration of how diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) topics are crucial in our work. 

This year's conference is at the beautiful and historic Boston Park Plaza, Boston's most beloved hotel, located just steps away from the Boston Public Garden, the Theater District, Newbury Street shopping, and so much more. Originally opened as The Statler Hotel in 1927, the Boston Park Plaza was the first in the world to offer in-room radios! Following a $100 million renovation in 2016, the hotel received a Four Diamond Award from AAA.
