About #PRovoke18

Welcome to PRovoke18 the Holmes Report's seventh Global Public Relations Summit, which has moved to Washington DC. As the most important event in the global communications world’s calendar, the 3-day conference is a high-level forum designed for senior practitioners to address the critical issues facing the profession. The event attracts a diverse group of top-tier speakers and delegates from across the globe and also benchmarks and celebrates the best public relations and marketing work from around the world.

In recent years, speakers have included Sir Martin Sorrell, Verizon Wireless CEO Ronan Dunne, Celebrity Cruises CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Columbia University professor and roboticist Hod Lipson, neuroscientist Tali Sharot, PBS Frontline executive producer Raney Aronson-Rath, noted documentarian Lynn Novick, and a host of authors, academics, CMOs and CCOs.

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 22.

The PRovoke18 conference itself—the global PR industry’s most informative, insightful and provocative event—will take place on October 23 and 24, culminating in our Global SABRE Awards ceremony on the evening of the 24th.
