NewComm Forums Announced -- Must for PR Pros
Friend Neville Hobson brings us welcome news of two conferences devoted to new communication strategies.
What is welcome and significant is the speed with which the organizers are moving... these conferences, at two days each in early 2005, promise to provide more knowledge about new communication than either PRSA or IABC will be able to offer before mid-2005.
"New Communications Forum 2005 will be held in two venues within weeks of each other:
NewComm Forum Americas West 2005 will be held in the US near Silicon Valley in late January. NewComm Forum Europe 2005 will be held in early February in Paris.
New Communications Forum 2005 will consist of an in-depth, two-day intensive workshop for senior communications professionals, taught by experienced PR and marketing professionals, who are also successful bloggers. The event will also feature practitioner panels, keynote addresses, and a hands-on demo area. Our goal is for attendees to leave the conference confident they can not only start blogging immediately, but also convince their corporations and/or clients that they should blog as well."
Update: I can see that organizer Elizabeth Albrycht has now also announced the conferences on her blog.
