The two most pressing topics facing communications professionals—at one high-impact educational event.

Dive deep into the industry’s most progressive curriculum on Crisis Management. Spend two days mastering the latest and greatest in Communications Measurement. Or attend classes on both topics for an education that is “twice as nice.”

CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS. You may think you’re not a “crisis communicator” but every PR and marketing professional must wear that hat on a daily basis. 
MASTERING MEASUREMENT. Learn how to tie your goals to KPIs that matter most and how to use those numbers to sharpen your communications initiatives.

Featuring a brand-side roster of instructors recruited by the editors of PRNEWS, you’ll walk away from this two-day conference with the skills and confidence to successfully manage your brand's next crisis and prove PR's worth.

“There are few summits worth attending these days. And none that provide PR professionals with the level of information and best practices than the PRNEWS Summit. Excellent in EVERY way! I came back armed with knowledge and inspiration, as well as a team of high-level experts with whom I can dialogue in the future.”
