The Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) is pleased to announce the latest instalment of Australia’s most prestigious communications industry event, the PRIA National Conference 2021.
Building on the success of the virtual event format last year, the National Conference represents the very best of the industry’s brightest minds and strategic thinkers and is a highlight in every communications professional’s calendar.
To meet the unPRecedented challenges our industry has faced, this year’s conference plans to redefine the virtual format for world-class content, discussion and networking delivery. The event will be held over five consecutive days from Monday 11th October through to the final session on Friday 15th. The optimised online format also allows the PRIA to deliver on the promise to ensure an equal opportunity for industry members and professionals across rural and regional areas.
After more than a year of unPRecedented challenges, this year’s event promises to cut through the buzzwords, cliches and jargon at a time when clear, strategic communication has never been more important.
