IABC (International Association of Business Communicators)
Association site highlights the organization's role as an "international knowledge network for those involved in strategic business communication
management." However, beyond the basic information about certification, careers, chapters, awards, and compensation survey results that can be
found online, the site itself provides little "networking" of its own.
The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA)
In direct contrast with the IABC site, PRSA has a lot more to offer visitors. Online access to the association's two publications, Public Relations
Tactics and The Public Relations Strategist, is provided, for example, as well as the latest industry news and opinions.
Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR)
Nonprofit trade organization for the exhibit industry offers a wide array of resources for members and nonmembers alike. Downloadable summaries
of the state of the exhibition industry, the "Census," and access to purchasable reports and member directories are all available.
The site, focused on innovation in the event-hosting industry, provides a free email publication, the weekly "EventWeb Newsletter."
Coverage is particularly strong on Internet and technology developments taking place in the event industry. Content is available on the site as
well, but typically runs some time behind the emails.
Exhibitor Magazine group's site for trade show and event marketing professionals includes news, opinions, information on upcoming shows,
new products, a glossary of trade-show jargon and terms, a bookstore, awards, and a supplier directory.
Journals And Magazines About PR
