InterChange 2018

October 26-27, 2018

The Details

InterChange is STC New England's annual technical communication conference. Over a two-day period, the conference features technical communicators from all over New England and beyond. Attendees use the conference to network, present new ideas, and hold workshops that build skills.

InterChange 2018 will be held on Friday, October, 26, 2018, and Saturday, October 27, 2018, at the UMass Lowell Inn and Conference Center in Lowell, Massachusetts.

This year's theme is Engineering Experiences. Technical communicators have always crafted stories and experiences for users using their words and technical expertise. As technology evolves, especially into areas like Augmented Reality, the need to craft effective and engaging experiences is more important than ever. 


We are seeking sponsors for InterChange 2018. Sponsorship creates a presence for your company at the conference, in the InterChange program, and on our website and other chapter materials. Such a presence can include representatives and speakers at the conference, as well as co-marketing your company and products to technical communicators in the New England region.

Call for presenters

We'd like to hear how you engineer experiences for users, internal groups, and other people who benefit from technical communication. (This theme is a guideline; do not feel like you have to strictly adhere to it.)

Submit your proposal to present at InterChange 2018.

Keynote speaker

Our keynote speaker, Danielle Villegas, is best known as blogger TechCommGeekMom. She has given presentations at the STC Summit, CONDUIT, IEEE-ProComm, and Drexel University.

Danielle has been active with the STC Philadelphia Metro Chapter (STC-PMC), doing publicity and sponsorship, acting as the CONDUIT co-chair, serving as Vice President, and currently serving as President of the chapter.


We need several volunteers to help make the event a success. We could still use one or two volunteers to manage materials and collateral. If you are interested in this or any other area, please reach out to and express what areas you'd be interested in.

Visiting from out of town?

We are not working with any other hotels for attendee accommodations, but there are several hotels in the area if you are unable to get a room at the hotel where the conference is held.
