The World Public Relations Forum has been the Global Alliance biennial assembly of Public Relations and Communication professionals from around the world to examine major issues affecting the profession and affected by the profession.
“Our theme — Communication without borders - reflects the global nature of the World Public Relations Forum, and of communication today,” said Global Alliance Chair Daniel Tisch. “Communication is transforming global society, and the Forum is an opportunity to break down barriers, enhance intercultural understanding, and consider how to enhance our profession’s contributions to our organizations — and to our world".
1,200 of world's leading communicators are expected to come together for discussion, debate, direction-setting and decision-making about public relations and communication. Bringing together world leaders in communication, new methods, research and ideas in the field of professional communication will be presentend and workshopped. It is also an opportunity for Australia to showcase the excellence of its public relations and communication practice.
It is also an opportunity to help build an international consensus on a new “mandate”, the Melbourne Mandate, for the organizational and societal value of public relations and communication management in the world today.
