I really didn’t know what to expect from attending my first PRSSA National Conference and I can honestly say that I thought it was great!
There were so many great sessions, and some not so great. I can easily talk all about my favorite one and my least favorite one. I loved listening to Sharon Barbano talk about finding out #PRStrong (check out my last blog post to read more about it). I wasn’t a huge fan of the sports PR session. I thought we were going to hear more about what working in sports PR would be like instead of what we did hear from the speaker.
This was my first, and definitely not my last time, visiting Boston. I was so excited when we finally landed and were driving to the hotel because everything looked so beautiful. All I wanted to do when we laded was tour and see everything!
The hotel that was holding the conference was beautiful. We didn’t have much time to settle into our room because we had to get to our first session and start our day. I was exhausted and hungry but happy to be able to be attending these sessions.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to tour Boston our first day there because it was a short day filled with conference sessions. On the second full day of sessions Margaret, Kate and I were able to walk to get lunch. We found a cute little cafe 10 minutes from our hotel.
We went out and toured as much of Boston as we could while we were there. One of the nights after we were done with all of our sessions, we all went to Harvard! It is such a beautiful campus and I can only imagine how beautiful it looks during the day.
On our last full day in Boston we woke up early and went to Fenway Park and on our way back to the hotel we made a pit stop at Mike’s Pastry. I highly recommend making a visit here for some of the most amazing cannoli you will ever eat.
Overall the trip to Boston for national conference was fantastic. I would recommend any PRSSA member to go to at least one national conference wherever it may be. I really hop that I will be able to go next year when it’s held in Austin, Texas.
