171. Planning for India’s first weekend PR Conference
Work is underway to put together arguably the first retreat for Indian PR professionals – both in-house and from consultancies.
The conference begins at 2.30 pm on November 23rd (Friday) and ends at 3.30 pm on November 24th (Saturday). However optional sessions will continue beyond 3.30 for couple of hours for those who want to stay back another night at an additional cost for the night stay. Broadly there will be 2 keynote addresses, 4 panels, a gala dinner (all this at a beautiful resort).
Currently Indigo Air has the best prices to and from Chennai (for Delhi and Mumbai based professionals), so take advantage and book your tickets into Chennai to reach the city before 12 noon as Pondicherry is a comfortable 2 hour drive from Chennai airport. Also book your return tickets on flights after 7.30 pm on 24th or anytime on 25th or after as the conference officially ends at 3.30 pm. However between 3.30 and 5.30 there will be a round table for those staying back on planning future conferences.
An event microsite will be up by July 16th with a detailed agenda. An event page has been created on facebook [http://www.facebook.com/events/251237734990506/ ] and can be accessed by requesting to join http://www.facebook.com/groups/iprcc/
