About PR ASIA

PR Asia is the de facto industry standard of what PR and Communications professionals need to know, learn and be equipped with, in order to lead in today’s ever-evolving environment. Organised annually as a flagship event by MARKETING-INTERACTIVE since 2013, PR Asia has been a huge success owing to the high participation by PR Agencies, PR Consultants, and in-house PR & Communications professionals.

Why participate in PR Asia?  In 2021, fuelled by the feedback received and research undertaken by our team, PR Asia will cover 3 critical success areas promulgated by today’s most vibrant PR and communications community in APAC. We’ve heard enough of what (and what not to) is post-pandemic. What the industry needs is a refresh and recharge to lead the way in bringing back the positive spin and vibes pre-pandemic through authenticity, power of influence, and community empowerment!

Get two steps ahead by joining PR Asia 2021!
