Retail in Asia partners with CampaignComms 2018


On 13 June 2018 at JW Marriott in HK,  Retail in Asia will be joining CampaignComms 2018 to listen to PR experts discussing the current changes in the PR industry in Asia.

Communications in Asia has matured at such pace that it’s unrecognisable to what it was five years ago. Asia has become a new hub for innovations.

KOLs and influencers dominate, e-commerce thrives, new channels develop and digital and economic growth goes from strength-to-strength.

The growth and influence of social platforms has become the strength and the weakness, as it increases its importance in the role of communications and intensifies the need for specialist skills in the region.

Asia will only continue on its quest for global innovation through contemporary ways of thinking, advancing technologies and new rules for brand engagement. It’s time to step up the game and rewrite the rulebook. CampaignComms, formally PR360, aims to unite key-decision makers with remit across PR, communications, social media and content marketing.

Through a mix of insightful panel discussions, masterclasses and cutting-edge presentations, pioneering speakers will address how to usher communications into the next stage of maturity.
