14th Global Communication Association International Conference
The Global Communication Association (GCA), a not-for-profit professional body, is pleased to announce the fourteenth international conference (www.globalcomassociation.com /www.gcaconference.com) of communication experts and specialists from around the world, to be held in the historic city of Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, on 11-12 October, 2018. Manipal University Jaipur (https://jaipur.manipal.edu/) will be the academic partner hosting this conference.
The 2018 GCA India conference focusing on ‘Digital Inbound: Internet Communications and Beyond’, has aroused keen interest amongst many participants from around the globe coming from different academic and industry backgrounds. Certainly, good communication is valuable. But it’s also complicated. Right now, we exist at something of a crossroads of digital and physical communications. Online dialoguing offers each party a cloak of anonymity, while face-to-face interaction requires you to bare all. Email is digital; an in-person meeting is “real”? It’s easy to feel unengaged by digital interactions. After all, who wants to talk to a robot? But, let’s take a step back for a minute and remember that there’s another person on the other side of the web, and that person’s voice is just as important as yours. Looking at it this way: By taking advantage of digital communication technology, we’re making ourselves available to our desired audiences. .
