The Holmes Report's first Global Public Relations Summit is a high-level event designed for senior practitioners to address the critical issues facing the profession and to celebrate the best public relations work from around the world.

The event will take place at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Hotel on October 30-31. The evening of the 30th will also feature a Global SABRE Awards dinner, which will bring together the winners from events in the Americas, the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), and Asia-Pacific regions to identify and celebrate the world's best public relations campaigns.

Backed by more than 20 leading global PR firms, the conference will attract senior communications professionals recognized in The Holmes Report's Influence 100 list of the 100 most important in-house communicators in the world-the second edition of that report will be unveiled at the event-as well as members of public relations leadership organizations.
