Overview of One of the Year’s Most Informative & Thought Provoking Communications Events:
The 7th Annual SNCR Symposium and Awards Gala will be held November 8-9, at the Stanford Park Hotel in Palo Alto, CA. The longest-standing social media event, SNCR’s annual Symposium and Awards Gala bridges academic, theoretical and practical pursuits in new communications. Alternating coasts each year, the conference brings together an influential group of insiders from various sectors to hear about the latest research, developments, trends, and best practices in new media and communications from SNCR’s Fellows, themselves all leading practitioners in academia, business, and communications. All Access passes are $495 per attendee and include participation in all aspects of the two-day event.
Historically the conference has hosted approximately 100 social media, marketing, communications, public relations and business professionals in academia, corporations, government, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and media outlets.
The two day symposium is centered on Fellows’ presentations of their research, unlike other conferences, because of the caliber of attendees, the programming is very interactive, feeling more like a round table discussion than lectures.

At the Awards Gala, an evening-long event featuring a three course meal, SNCR presents two sets of awards:
Juried Entries – SNCR Fellows award three levels of recognition (Excellence in New Communications, Certificate of Excellence in New Communications and Certificate of Merit in New Communications) across six divisions (corporate, education/academic, government, media, nonprofit and technology/vendor). To be considered, organizations submit comprehensive case studies of their communications efforts which are judged by SNCR Fellows and then made available to the public via SNCR’s website. In aggregate, these case studies create a unique asset as they present a broad and deep overview of current best practices in the field of new communications.
Fellows Choice Awards – Through internal research and discussion, SNCR Fellows award four honors based on new communications excellence: Organization/Brand of the Year, Innovation of the Year, Humanitarian of the Year and Visionary of the Year.
