Please note: Unlike many other PR conferences, none of our speakers pay for the privilege of speaking. They are all chosen by our editorial department because of their expert opinion. We do this because we believe that if delegates are paying to attend a conference, there is a conflict of interest if the speakers have paid to speak.

Also, just to reassure you, PRmoment does not share delegate details with any third parties.
