The PRIA/ RCG annual research is a comprehensive look at the PR industry, and has been running for some 15 years. The research covers, standard rates, billing, retention and other key issues within the PR domain - and presents these findings comparatively. The research can arm you with key information to make your PR business more competitive.

This year, we have partnered with Lonergan to conduct the research - and they have spoken to the industry about what should change and what should be included. Melanie Vine from Lonergan will provide the key findings, and further information on the research which will go to market in mid October.
