Pragmatist PR

How creative technology and innovative platforms are redefining brand communications

Date: Thu 11th May 2017
Location: Cohn & Wolfe, Lynton House, 7-12 Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9LT
Organiser: PRmoment Events
Cost: Free for in-house comms and marketing folks

Why attend: 

The press has always been inclined to write about brand comms if it is innovative. For example, a stunt on a huge scale. But many believe that innovation in technology and platforms is rising head and shoulders above the rest as the stand out creative.

A station takeover cannot just be physical now - it must be digital/social. A picture stunt for the sake of it feels hollower than ever. There are so many boundaries to push, so many ways of connecting people - brand communications can no longer be one dimensional, they should be intrinsically linked to the appropriate technology or an appropriate platform.

Our speakers at this event will talk you through how they are trying to do this with the brands they work for.

Due to high demand, we have to limit the number of tickets per organisation to three. 

Please note this seminar is part of our series of events for in-house communicators only.  If agency delegates register I'm afraid we will have to cancel your ticket - sorry!
