The Big Day Is Finally Here!

13 05 2010

Today marked the first day of the V Congress on Research in Public Relations. The Emerson College team has worked extremely hard in anticipation for this conference and we were excited to finally share our projects and ideas with some of Spain´s most prominent figures. Industry experts from both Spain and other countries were present to give their two cents about the trends and challenges that face the public relations field.

The day´s events opened with a welcome and overview from Blanquera´s leading professors, including Miquel Tresserras, Joan Manuel Tresserras, Antionio Castillo, Josep Rom, and Enric Ordeix. Then at 10:30 AM, we had a choice of three different panels:

– ¨Academic Innovation in Public Relations¨
– ¨Social Media and Public Relations 2.0¨
– ¨Advertising and Public Relations¨

Even though there was a language barrier (the panelists spoke in Spanish), we were incredibly impressed by the wealth of knowledge and expertise. The second set of panel discussions to choose from were equally, if not more interesting. Conference participants had the option of choosing from:

– ¨Institution Relations and Protocol¨
– ¨Movies and Public Relations¨
– ¨Student Presentations¨

Congratulations to fellow Emersonians Annie Huff, Sruthi Vijayan, Ada Renedo and Daniel Tick who wowed the audience with their presentations!
