The NCMPR 2024 conference (National Council for Marketing and Public Relations) was a TON of fun in Seattle, where the coffee was strong, and the community college connections were stronger! Please enjoy this photo blog of some of our favorite moments, plus a helpful, downloadable gift at the end!

Prizes Galore!

First off, attendees had an awesome time “unlocking” goodies at our booth! Here are some of our fabulous winners and their prizes:

NCMPR 2024 Treats!

We had so much fun giving away goodies. Another treat was the VIEWS at the conference — sunsets, crab legs, and most especially, the Seattle-famous coffee!

Yum! And let’s not forget the wonderful sightseeing adventures! Our Executive Director of Media Prefs, Jamie Wagner, took in a Kraken hockey game, while our VP of Account Services, Mary De Luca, enjoyed a trip to Pike Place and amazing views atop the Space Needle.

NCMPR 2024 Paragon Awards

Of course, the highlights of the conference were the Sounds of Seattle reception and the coveted Paragon Awards presentation! Congrats, winners!

The band “Fortress of the Bear” got us in the mood to really rock the ceremony. But our favorite part of the conference? That was definitely presenting with our awesome college partners and sharing the love with all the wonderful participants:
