PR 360: Speakers announced

The must-attend PR event returns to Hong Kong for the fifth year on 6 June.

PR 360: Speakers announced

PR360 is back, bringing together PR and communications experts for a full day of learning, experience sharing and networking.  The event has become an essential event for the region, with previous speakers representing leading brands such as Uber, HSBC, Siemens, American Express, Proctor & Gamble and more.

PR360 continues to provide an invigorating programme, hosting a wide range of speakers and panelists from top brands and agencies.

Recent PR disasters and a general decline in trust toward the media make this year’s theme of 'activism and purpose' particularly relevant. Attendees will have a chance to assess the role of brand activism, hear best practices and case studies for communications crises, gain practical tips on how to attract and retain fresh, diverse talent and more.
