The 2013 edition of the International Association of Audio Information Services conference will be held in Minneapolis, from June 6–8 at the Sheraton Minneapolis Midtown Hotel.
“Our conferences are designed to be sources of education, inspiration and an opportunity for professionals to share with others in the same rarified field,” IAAIS President Stuart Holland said in a press release.
Holland added that the 2013 conference’s location is significant because it marks a return to the birthplace of radio information services in 1969 with the Minnesota Radio Reading Service.
“Since there are so many different approaches, the conferences have a very broad scope of educational presentations, from technology and government regulations, to volunteer management and fundraising,” Holland said. He also emphasized the importance of networking, another element of the conference program.
“You will get an opportunity to share your successes, issues and problems and will return to your work with new ideas and a greater feeling of connectedness to the profession around the world,” Holland said.
Registration costs $225 for IAAIS members and $250 for nonmembers for the entire conference. The single-day rate is $100, banquet tickets cost $75. Vendors must pay a fee of $525 to register.
