September 21, 11 AM–2:30 PM
Grand Hyatt in New York City

Join us for the Celebration of the Year!

PR News’ Platinum PR and Agency Elite Awards celebrate the ingenuity and leadership behind the year’s most outstanding communications initiatives. Hundreds of PR, communications and PR professionals will unite on September 21 at the Grand Hyatt in NYC, as we unveil the winners and honorees of the 2018 Platinum PR and Agency Elite Awards!

During the awards luncheon, attendees will hear from keynoter, Hannah Storm, the award-winning journalist, producer and director, a pioneer in the field of sports broadcasting for women, an advocate for children’s issues, and a published author.  She joined ESPN in 2008 and now serves as an anchor and host for prime time specials, SportsCenter on the Road, the ESPYs and more. In an exclusive fireside chat at the awards luncheon, Storm will discuss the storytelling techniques her production company, Brainstormin' Productions, uses in its documentaries and branded content for clients. She'll also speak about her experience as a trailblazer for female journalists in the broadcasting industry.
