Holmes Report 14 Jan 2019 // 8:30AM GMT
The Holmes Report has unveiled its 2019 global events calendar, which will include events in no fewer than 14 cities across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Africa and Latin America.
The lineup will see the flagship PRovoke19 Global PR Summit return to Washington DC in late October, along with Innovation Summits in San Francisco, Dubai, London, Kigali and Singapore. All of those are in collaboration with SABRE Awards events in the relevant regions, while there will also again be standalone SABRE ceremonies in Latin America and India.
The Holmes Report is also expanding its presence in Davos (two events in 2019) and Cannes (via ICCO's House of PR), while also deepening its relationships with key partners, including global body ICCO, Asia-Pacific group APACD, Africa's APRA, India's PRCAI and Promise Foundation, Mexico's PRORP, Singapore's NTU and Russia's AKOS.
Meanwhile, the calendar does not include the various Roundtables that will bring together senior comms leaders across the globe — confirmed 2019 markets include Australia, China, India, Singapore, the UK and USA.
"Our mission has always been to share knowledge and ideas globally," says Holmes Report CEO and editor-in-chief Arun Sudhaman. "That requires us to develop and deepen our presence across the world, rather than relying on established markets like the US and UK to set the agenda. Increasingly, we are seeing innovation originating from markets that were once relegated to 'emerging' status, across Asia-Pacific, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. We are there to discover and cover those ideas, curate conversations and deliver content."
