Join them in this premier public relations conference!
I attended the International Public Relations Summit in Bali in 2012. That conference provided a great opportunity to learn Asian perspectives on public relations and to share success stories, learn new theories, and discuss important developments in practice such as digital media, research and measurement, global practice, and the importance of social responsibility and sustainability. The summit, organized admirably by EGA briefings, has been held every two years since then, and this year’s virtual conference is one of the best ever. Public relations is developing rapidly into a strategic management function throughout the world, and ideas about how to improve the profession are coming from every continent. Asian economies are among the most dynamic in the world, and public relations has played a strong role in their development. This year’s virtual conference offers a unique opportunity to learn from leading scholars and practitioners around the world and to do so from the comfort and safety of our own homes or offices.

Today’s enterprises are being challenged on all sides, by profound disruption driven by powerful digital platforms; shifting global markets; geopolitical challenges; and new consumer, citizen and employee expectations. CEOs are contending with competitive challenges from emerging technologies, new business models and shifting stakeholder expectations about the value an enterprise can and should create. At Page, we believe that this is an existential moment not only for our enterprises but also for our function. Each are threatened with extinction if they don’t respond effectively. We applaud the International Public Relations Summit for taking on these issues and look forward to a great conference.
This year’s IPRS 2020 conference will present some interesting and important findings dealing with public relations and corporate communication. Keynote speakers will be focusing on concerns that are drawing attention—from COVID-19 to Chief Communication Officer (CO) strategic communication initiatives from the Page Society to reputation and crisis management. Technological challenges and opportunities will also be discussed, from digital technology through data determination and uses. There will be something for everyone in virtual attendance.

The IPRS is one of Southeast Asia's most well-organized and actionable conferences. Public affairs professionals, researchers, government leaders, and academia will all benefit from the global insights and conversations they will have at the IPRS. EGA briefings unfailingly creates a supportive and thoughtful environment for each year's summit. Highly recommended.
