STC’s Technical Communication Summit is the premier conference for technical communication education and networking.

Virtual Summit Registration Is Now Open

What’s included with my registration? Full Virtual Summit registration includes access to all education and keynote sessions as well as the virtual Expo Hall and social and networking events.

As of 13 March 2020, we have frozen the conference rates and will not increase the rates as previously planned on 31 March 2020. This means attendees can take time to understand the value of the new virtual event and make their attendance decisions accordingly. This year the virtual Summit will be recorded, and attendees will have a pass to all on-demand sessions during and after the conference with their virtual registrations. This means access to over 100 sessions, not just those you would have been able to attend in person.

NEW THIS YEAR! All virtual Summit attendees will also receive the full Summit OnDemand after the event. This provides attendees with over 100 sessions that can be viewed later at your convenience and shared with colleagues.

Attendance at the 2020 Virtual Summit provides 8 CEUs toward CPTC currency. CEUs apply only to those who are certified and cannot be counted retroactively.

Virtual Summit registration rates are available through the start of the 2020 Technical Communication Summit!
