The International Public Relations Association (IPRA) is hosting its 60th Anniversary in 2015, an important milestone for the international association that serves individual public relations practitioners with members in more than 80 countries, in South Africa.
“We were pleased to award our 2015 Congress to Johannesburg, as we saw their enthusiasm and ability to host this important event as a critical selection criteria for IPRA,” says IPRA 2013 president, Christophe Ginisty. IPRA is the principal source for Codes of Conduct governing public relations across the globe and other host cities in the recent past have included Chicago, Istanbul, Beijing and Lima, with the last being Dubai.
“We are delighted to have been awarded this bid and we believe that our worldwide connections, along with our excellent facilities will ensure that the IPRA 2015 Congress is one of the most memorable for delegates and visitors,” says Pumla Ntsele of Joburg Tourism.
The congress is due to take place at the Sandton Convention Centre, with the expected number of delegates to be in the region of 500 – perhaps more – from all over the world. The date has been finalised for the 27-29 September 2015.
