Last night was the introductory cocktail party/mingling session for the ICCO Conference, sponsored by Nokia, for some reason. In the space of an hour I had discussions with PR pros from Finland, Nigeria, India, Hong Kong, China, and the US. Perhaps Nokia was influenced by the presence of the Finns.

Some people expressed disappointment that the conference participants are so heavily tilted toward Indian firms and corporates this year. They said that it is essential that all the world is equally represented in order for ICCO to work as it should. But the Indian professionals themselves seemed enthusiastic to network and explain their own agencies to all present.

One corporate communicator, when asked about the state of the media in China, said it was repressed, which is great for business. Indian media, he opined, is a bit too free to be convenient. So yes - many opinions were represented.
