by

At the 2014 CommCon, set for Thursday, May 1, professionals, educators, students and organizations will come together to grow their networks and discover new aspects of the media community in Boise. Put on by the Communication Department at Boise State, this event is open to the public.

With an expected attendance of more than 400 people and 20 organizations manning booths, there will be plenty of content to consume and people to converse with over media matters and more.

This is a great opportunity for students and individuals to connect themselves and create ties across educational and professional fields. Students may even get involved with manning their own booth, by submitting a project or paper to be displayed. Gather together your best and most innovative work to share with the community and be discovered for your brilliance.

After the convention, attendees are welcome to join in on a keynote event. Several Olympians who competed in the Sochi Winter Games, with ties to Idaho, will be at Boise State to discuss the impact of social media on their professional lives, and especially during their Sochi experience. The event, dubbed #socialinsochi, features Olympians Erik Fisher, Nick Cunningham and Sara Studebaker.
