More than 120 students are coming to Grand Rapids from universities throughout Michigan and Ohio to explore opportunities in public relations careers. The regional conference, hosted by the Grand Valley Public Relations Student Society of America, is a two-day event that will take place April 13 and 14 in downtown Grand Rapids at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.

The conference, entitled “LimitlessPR: Creating your future in GR,” will give students an opportunity to tour the city and visit public relations offices at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, the MLive Media Hub and the public relations firm Lambert, Edwards and Associates.

Students will hear public relations speakers from a variety of industries including tourism, sports, education and government. Michele Begnoche, communications specialist from the Pure Michigan campaign, will give the keynote speech.
