A special world conference examining public relations and communication management in emerging economies is to be hosted by the Public Relations Society of Kenya on November 15-18, 2015 in cooperation with the Global Alliance.
The conference, announced during the closing stages of this year's World Public Relations Forum in Madrid, will bring together practitioners and academics from across the globe to look at the particular challenges facing practitioners working in evolving and continually changing environment.
The cultural, social and economic impact of public relations will be considered and, as Global Alliance Chair Anne Gregory commented, the Kenyan conference provides a vital opportunity for professionals to exchange ideas and innovations made in the field.
"Kenya is uniquely placed to hold this conference which will have particular and significant relevance for those public relations professionals around the world who are deeply immersed with the very specific issues surrounding emerging economies and the role of public relations and communication management in economic and social progress.
"The Global Alliance is delighted to be cooperating with Kenya and we look forward to meeting next year to discuss these issues in depth."

"We will have specialist speakers on the subject as well as some academic insights and contributions - it promises to be an absorbing and useful conference."
