As this is PRmoment India’s first ever conference we have no recommendations as yet. However we do have some from a couple of our UK delegates. The India conference is based on the UK model we have tried and tested. 

I love PRmoment events. They’re perfectly formed, tackling important issues, with excellent content and speakers. The set-up is great – a full morning of quality presentations, a bit of networking and you’re back in the office with half the day still left. And the speakers are strong – a combination of ‘big names’ and new faces. I’ve stopped looking at the topic and line-up now, I just book. Because I know that attending a PR Moment event will be a morning well spent. Highly recommended.
