LONDON — The first partners have been confirmed for the PRovoke Media EMEA Summit, to be held in London on 17 April with the theme ‘Brace for Impact: Supercharging the Power of PR in 2024’.

Leading firms supporting the event include Weber Shandwick, Ketchum, Edelman, BCW, Finn Partners and SEC Newgate, with in-house and agency speakers on a range of topics such as women’s health – including prominent broadcaster and menopause campaigner Mariella Frostrup – creativity for real world impact, ageism, AI, election year and the importance of communications with heart in complex times.

For the first time, the EMEA Summit, which will take place at London’s Ham Yard Hotel, has been extended to a full day of content. The daytime programme will include the presentation of the In2 SABRE awards for innovation, whose winners have been announced this week.

PRovoke Media EMEA editor Maja Pawinska Sims said: “I’m really excited about our newly-extended Summit– we’re working with our partners on some brilliant panel sessions and keynotes, with guests including veteran journalists, CMOs, creative directors, politicos, NGO leaders and research scientists, and we’ll be diving into a wide range of critical areas where communications will have real impact this year.”

The EMEA SABRE Awards, including EMEA agencies of the year, will be held in the evening after the summit, at the legendary Troxy venue. A full list of shortlisted campaigns can be found here. Agency of the year finalists will be announced soon.
