The annual Asia Pacific PR summit came to a close on Friday at the Florence Room of the Venetian Macao.
The summit brought together independent public relations (PR) firms for this region of the worldwide association of PR firms. With the summit having taken place over three days, it allowed members the opportunity to to hear speakers talk on such issues as involving the environment, with a Greenpeace speaker, as well as professors from Hong Kong and Mainland China. The latter spoke about the PR industry in Hong Kong and China and Macau’s role. As well, workshops were also held to allow for interaction between members and to witness the industry in Macau and the events that are allowing for public relation opportunities to take place here.
Countries involved in the summit included Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Australia, who had three companies representing the country, Philippines, South Korea, Japan Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong and Thailand.
As Nicky Kemp, Director of PR Plus Ltd in Hong Kong said, “some of the members have clients here in Macau, such as the Venetian.”
The worldwide association, added Ms Kemp, “has been around for twenty years” with last week’s summit being attended by a record 45 delegates.
