WASHINGTON, DC — More than 20 of the world’s leading public relations firms are collaborating with PRovoke Media on the 2023 PRovokeGlobal Summit, which will take place in Washington, DC, from November 6-8 at the Hotel Washington.

The list of participating partners includes seven of the world’s 10 largest public relations firms as well as a host of other global agencies and forward-thinking midsize independents from markets around the world. Platinum level sponsors are BCW, Edelman, Omnicom Public Relations Group, and Weber Shandwick.

Gold level sponsors include Finn Partners, FleishmanHillard, Hill+Knowlton Strategies, Ketchum, MSL, Next Practices Group, Porter Novelli, Red Havas, SEC Newgate, and WE Communications. Silver level sponsors include Adfactors, Citizen Relations, and Zeno Group. Additional partners include Coyne PR, First Partners, Prophet, SPRG and Unlock Health.

As always, the first day of the Summit will feature the Entrepreneur's Forum, designed exclusively for PR agency founders and leaders and focusing on ways they can better manage their firms, which is sponsored by New York-based law firm Davis & Gilbert, the UK-based thenetworkone (which helps clients find independent agencies around the world) and PROI, the premier network of affiliated independent agencies.

“The list of participating companies is a who’s who of the public relations business, a roster of partners who all bring impressive thought leadership credentials to an event that is forward-looking and focused on what’s next for the public relations profession,” says Paul Holmes, PRovoke Media founder.

Some sponsorship opportunities are still available for this year's Summit, which will focus on “Public Relations: Action and Impact.” To learn more, please contact Kim Cataldi

Says Holmes: “For decades, public relations professionals have focused on communication. But in the new era of stakeholder capitalism, organizations can no longer expect to be defined by how they communicate. Instead, organizations are being defined by what they do, by how they behave, by their policies and their actions.

“And for decades, we have measured coverage, reach, impressions, awareness. But in the new era of accountability, organizations can no longer afford to be satisfied with measuring output. Instead, organizations will be judged by critical audiences based on the impact their actions have on the real world, and public relations professionals will be judged by their impact on success.”

Tickets for this year’s PRovokeGlobal can be reserved here. A flash sale on tickets for the Entrepreneur’s Forum and the Summit — offering a 20% discount — will run for the next three weeks (until September 8).
