Overview

It is increasingly clear that strategic Public Relations can drive innovation, strengthen economic growth and bring broad benefits: from sustainable development to increased security, improved public health and a better quality of life to stronger national and international community ties.

The WCPREE has wide appeal to emerging economies in Africa, Asia and South America, but will also be of interest to developed economies on how the world is going to change and how business will be different in the future.

The conference promises to be thought provoking and will focus on crucial issues affecting emerging economies such as jobs and growth, health, sustainability and climate change and will bring some of the big names and thinkers to positon emerging economies as centres for hard thinking, innovation and action.

Apart from the conference plenary and parallel sessions, there is a careful blend of academic discourse, mentonrship and skills set workshop for students pursuing studies in our field as well as masterclasses targeting profesionnals working in diverse economic sectors.
