New York, NY – June 4, 2020 – PRWeek is transitioning its U.S. events to virtual settings for the remainder of 2020, including its annual awards ceremony, conferences and other live activations.
“The appetite for convening large groups of people for live events and traveling across the country to do so just isn’t there at the moment. People are focused on keeping their families safe, doing their job while WFH and getting through this crazy period,” said Steve Barrett, VP, editorial director of PRWeek. “The safety of our staff, readers, attendees and customers has always been our top priority and that’s even more essential during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Major virtual event dates:
- PRWeek US Awards – July 30
- Hall of Femme – September 17
- PR Decoded: Purpose in Action conference and Purpose Awards – October 14-15
- PRWeek 40 Under 40 – October 29
The PRWeek Convene virtual event series continues on June 17 with COVID-19: Health & Well-Being. Other new segments reflecting life during the coronavirus pandemic include Coffee Break and Lockdown Life.
