Public relations agency executives from across the globe will convene in Washington, D.C. April 15-17, 2011 for the annual meeting of PR Boutiques International™ (PRBI), one of the fastest growing international networks in the industry.
PRBI was founded just three years ago by an initial group of about a dozen agencies and in one of the most difficult economic periods in decades, it has grown to more than 30 agencies in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
“Our annual meeting is both a celebration of what we’ve been able to achieve and an opportunity to expand our capabilities for our clients and agencies,” said Bill Cowen, president of PRBI and Metrospective Communications LLC, the Philadelphia headquartered PR agency.
During three days of meetings and events, PRBI members will dine at the National Press Club, welcome top industry leaders to discuss agency and network operations, and hear from experts in social media and emerging technologies. In addition to the formal sessions, the meeting will be an opportunity for agency leaders to network and share ideas and experiences.
“Our clients value the senior counsel and flexible relationships they have with our PRBI agencies,” he said. “Our members enjoy these same benefits and that’s why we look forward to an annual meeting that is not only professional and productive, but also quite personable.”
