MIAMI — Multinational public relations networks Cohn & Wolfe, Edelman, Ketchum, Golin, and Weber Shandwick are the Holmes Report’s five finalists for Global Agency of the Year recognition. The winner will be announced at the Global SABRE Awards ceremony, which takes place as part of the PRovoke17 Global PR Summit in Miami later this month.

The Holmes Report has also selected finalists in seven specialist categories—Consumer, Corporate, Creative, Digital, Healthcare, Public Affairs and Technology—as well as for a New Consultancy of the Year category.

Those firms are drawn from 12 markets around the world — from the US and UK to India, Slovakia, Singapore and Australia — and were selected from among our Agency of the Year honorees in the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. The 2017 Global PR Agencies of the Year are the result of an exhaustive research process involving more than 400 submissions and face-to-face meetings with the best PR firms around the world.

Profiles of all the nominated agencies can be
found here or below.

The winners will be announced at our
Global SABRE Awards dinner in Miami on October 25, which will also recognize the 40 best public relations campaigns from around the world this year.

The Global SABRE Awards dinner is part of the
PRovoke17 Global PR Summit. Tickets for both events can be reserved here.
