In 2017, PRINZ put forward a bid to host World Public Relations Forum 2020 (WPRF2020), the world’s largest biennial event for Public Relations and Communications Management professionals. On behalf of 1300 members, we won the bid in 2018 and since then, we have been preparing to bring you the largest industry event in New Zealand.

In this interactive webinar, CEO of PRINZ, Elaine Koller will give you an overview of what to expect from the forum and how we can all play a role to welcome our international colleagues in 2020.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions or share your thoughts and suggestions at the conclusion of the session.
