    Trends in Communications and PR – Outlook for 2020

    IABC Dallas is bringing together a panel of some of the brightest minds in communications!

    Join us as they share the trends across their communications landscape, and come ready to pick their brains on what they expect to influence in communications for 2020 and beyond.

    The panel will strive to answer many of the questions top of mind for communicators today:

    Will social media continue to reign supreme for consumer brands? Do B2B companies need to pay attention to social media? What role will video play in our social media strategies? Can a company compete in this marketing and communications centric marketplace without a strong communications function? What comes next? Will CSR and ESG continue to demand attention? Will customers increase their scrutiny of companies’ social impact, diversity, and focus on improving the environment? If so – how do we highlight our organization’s track record? Will there be budget for all our initiatives?

    If these questions are of burning interest, don’t miss this program. And, if you have a question not on this list, bring it with you.

    Oh – and be ready to pick the brains of one of the many communications leaders that will be the room with you.

    This event will be a barn-burner, so sign up today!
