The fourth edition of India PR and Corporate Communications Conference (IPRCCC) is back in a bigger and better avatar. Organised by exchange4media, the event sports the theme of ‘New Media - Friend or Foe’ this year. IPRCCC is being held in Delhi on May 31, 2013.
Ever since its inception in 2010, IPRCCC has served as a platform for PR and corporate communications professionals to converge and discuss the key issues and trends impacting the industry as well as recognising and honouring the game changing strategies of their peer group.
One of the highlights of this year’s conference is the involvement of an eminent Advisory Group at every stage of the process that includes some leading names in the industry.
The Conference revolves around varied discussions on the new era obstacles in the path of PR and corporate communications, ranging from ‘PR being a Holistic communications platform or has it missed the Bus as new media communicators?’, ‘The right Investment in terms of talent acquisition, skill enhancement, training and developing capabilities to the next level- Do PR agencies have what it takes?’, ‘Embracing the New Digital Order or fade away to nothingness’ and ‘Is the social media geared to track the regional markets? What are the implications? What should or shouldn't be the strategy for building brands through PR.’.
