MIAMI—PRovoke17, our sixth Global Public Relations Summit, will take place once again at the St Regis Bal Harbour resort in Miami. And we are kicking off the event with a special weekend sale offering a 50% discount for early registration.

For this weekend—until midnight EST on Monday January 16—attendees can book their place at the event through our dedicated website for half the normal price: that’s $1297.50 for the entire three-day event, or $647.50 for any single day of the event.

Our Independent PR Firm Forum—a half-day event designed to help PR agency principals anticipate the challenges and exploit the opportunities facing their businesses—will take place on Monday October 23.

The PRovoke17 conference itself—the global PR industry’s most informative, insightful and provocative event—will take place on October 24 and 25.

Our 2016 speakers included Verizon Wireless CEO Ronan Dunne, Celebrity Cruises CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, MBAs Across American CEO Casey Gerald, Columbia University professor and roboticist Hod Lipson, PBS Frontline executive producer Raney Aronson-Rath, and a host of authors, academics, CMOs and CCOs—a stellar lineup for a public relations conference.

This is an event that Weber Shandwick’s global chief executive Andy Polansky says “stands out among industry events given the quality of the speakers, its broad range of topics covered and its international audience.”

According to Kate Johns of Africa’s Standard Bank, the Global Summit is “thought provoking and paradigm-shifting.”

M Booth chief executive Dale Bornstein adds: “There hasn't been a year yet when I haven't been inspired by something I heard here. Some of those insights have contributed profoundly to the evolution and success of our agency and our business.”
