Communication without borders: One year until Melbourne welcomes the World Public Relations Forum

In exactly one year, public relations and corporate communication professionals from around the world will be in Melbourne for the Seventh World Public Relations Forum — and today we're announcing the theme for the conference: Communication without borders.

The Forum will be hosted by PRIA for members of the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management , the confederation of the world’s major public relations and communication industry associations.

“Our theme — Communication without borders — reflects the global nature of the World Public Relations Forum, and of communication today,” said Global Alliance Chair Daniel Tisch. “Communication is transforming global society, and the Forum is an opportunity to break down barriers, enhance intercultural understanding, and consider how to enhance our profession’s contributions to our organisations — and to our world.”

You can keep up to date with the developing program and make comments and suggestions on the WPRF Facebook page.

PRIA will host the WPRF, supported by the Global Alliance, from the 18th to 20th November 2012 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Bringing together world leaders in communication - new methods, research and ideas in the field of professional communication will be presented and workshopped. It is also an opportunity for Australia to showcase the excellence of its public relations and communication practice.

The Global Alliance’s recently released international survey aims to identify the key trends and advocacy priorities of public relations professionals around the world and is an opportunity for public relations and communication professionals to input into the global advocacy initiative leading up to the WPRF. The survey will play a key role in informing the advocacy section of the WPRF program agenda in Melbourne.
