2016 theme: reinventing the industry

Communications Week is a cross-industry celebration of the public relations, communications and media industries. The inaugural week in 2014 consisted of inspirational, informational and social events for those interested in PR, communications and media, taking place in New York City and online. Many events are held partnership with leading organizations and media outlets. 2016's events will focus on the reinvention of the communications industry.

Change is here. Embrace it. In the past decade, we've seen the advent of social media and the rise of digital, mobile and democratized, always-on content creation. As we look to reinvent the communications industry, we'll examine the tools that professionals and agencies need to stay competitive and how new technologies like VR and AI are changing the way we communicate. 

what people are saying

It’s time to surface what is really driving change for the communications industry and talk about some of the most innovative approaches to PR and communications.
— Tiffany Guarnaccia, Founder Communications Week & CEO of Kite Hill Public Relations
There is a co-dependency between public relations and journalism, and we often focus on the tensions rather than the collaboration between the two professions. This is an opportunity to engage in valuable discourse about the future of PR and media, learn from our colleagues and raise the bar for both industries.
— Sandra Fathi, president of Affect
“PRSA-NY is an organization that leads the industry conversation. Being a part of the inaugural Communications Week allowed us to reach and engage a broader set of communications and media professionals in the New York City area. It was a valuable platform for our organization.”
