CIPR seeks input for ‘PR festival’

The CIPR is asking PROs to submit proposals for the first World Public Relations Conference & Festival to be held in the UK next year.

CIPR director-general and chair of the Global Alliance Colin Farrington wants practitioners to submit workshop papers based on conference themes. They include ‘How PR helps build countries’ reputations’ and ‘The challenge that diversity poses to comms’. The conference will be hosted by the industry body in June 2008.

Proposals are welcomed from practitioners in all countries. The process is open to in-house and agency staff in the public and private sectors, and those at NGOs.

Bookings will be available in February. For information about the conference and submitting proposals, visit www.cipr.co.uk/wprf08.
