About PR ASIA
PR Asia has been an annual flagship PR and Communications focused conference in Singapore, organised by MARKETING-INTERACTIVE since 2013. In 2019, we introduced PR Asia to Malaysia. The inaugural PR Asia Malaysia conference was a huge success owing to the high participation by PR Agencies, PR Consultants and in-house PR & Communications professionals. In 2020, fuelled by the feedback received and research undertaken by our team, PR Asia will cover 9 top critical issues faced by the vibrant PR and Communications community in APAC.
Why is it critical for you to participate in PR Asia 2020? Unprecedented in modern history, the COVID-19 pandemic has created utter chaos and major disruptions. This year, we will address the new realities for PR and crisis communicators, explore how brands are dealing with the impact of COVID-19, and discuss areas of priority for communications.
Thriving in 2021 and beyond will require you to be two steps ahead. Get started by joining PR Asia 2020.

2. The Crux Of The New Normal And Going 100% Virtual
An Engaging Virtual Experience & Embracing A Wider Audience
PR Asia Singapore and PR Asia Malaysia were successful in-person conferences in the past. In 2020, we are bringing together our APAC community of PR and Communications experts, to share insights and critical learning points to fuel the growth of PR strategy and development for both In-house Brand Communications Specialists and PR Agencies & Consultants.
This year, we will go 100% virtual so that no one is denied a chance to participate from anywhere in the world, despite restrictions for large scale events and social distancing rules. We promise a highly interactive and enjoyable experience as did we give participants in our earlier virtual event – Content 360.
There Is No Better Time Than Now – Meet The New Normal
It is time to consolidate unprecedented learning points and to address issues we have faced in 2020. We need to prepare ourselves for what’s ahead in 2021 and beyond.
We coin the term #NewNormal often enough – but are we really prepared for what lies ahead?
For the majority of 2020, the world has been in a constant state of flux. For those working in PR and communications, whose job is to untangle the knots, there have been an increased need to stay tuned and be on top of the crisis updates as this is imperative to ensure they bring clarity to both internal and external communications in steering their brands from the turbulent winds of the pandemic.
PR Asia will explore ways in which the communications landscape has transformed to prepare and embrace the post-COVID reality.
3. PRoactive Post Conference Workshops
When you register for PR Asia, you will get FREE access to not 1, not 2, but 4 post conference workshops.
