“Be a Better Freelancer™–Take It to the 10th!” arrives September 25–26, 2015 in Rochester, NY, and celebrates Communication Central’s 10th annual Build Your Communications Business conference, with both new presenters and familiar faces, all offering new takes and topics aimed at helping participants be more productive, efficient, effective, and successful.

Why Attend?

Why attend this event? Because you won’t find a better environment for getting to know and learn from colleagues in a variety of freelancing areas. Unlike other events, the Communication Central conference affords you an opportunity to enjoy a level of quality time with presenters and attendees that you won’t experience elsewhere.

Today’s e-mail and online interaction is invaluable, but meeting colleagues in person can’t be beat. You won’t just learn about ways to improve your freelancing skills and overall business; you will make connections that are likely to lead to new projects with the people you meet at the event — just ask past attendees (many of whom come year after year to this conference because of the valuable information they gain and connections they make).


This year’s conference will be held at the downtown Hyatt Hotel in Rochester, NY. Reservation information is included in the conference registration form.

Once you decide to attend, I suggest making your hotel reservation quickly. The conference weekend coincides with the end of a local film festival and rooms are likely to be at a premium as we get closer to September. (Should the conference hotel rooms get snapped up, there are three other properties within a block away: a new Hilton Gardens Inn, a Radisson, and the former Rochester Plaza, now a Crowne Plaza. It also might be possible to bunk with local colleagues or share hotel rooms with other conference-goers. Let me know if you’d like to try one of those options.)
