Annual Conference

The 11th annual SMPS Virginia Annual Conference was held in downtown Richmond on February 23-24, 2017. This year's conference theme “grow&thrive!” included sessions centered around growth strategies, including: business growth, client relationships, thought leadership, career growth through mentorship, or simply growing media presence. 

We had an outstanding lineup of presenters, numerous sponsorship opportunities, a special award luncheon, and a unique networking social at the new Quirk Hotel. Please use the navigation bar on the left to better explore this year's conference, including the schedule with links to speakers and presentations, photos, and sponsors.

We look forward to seeing all of you next year!
