As we draw 2016 to a close, it is time to look back and celebrate another great year of learning and sharing. A year of victories and joys, a year of living a life full of experiences and excitement. A leap year which was full of surprises.
In every progressive country where Public Relations has come of age the community of professionals celebrates. An award ceremony is not the only way to celebrate as those who win have a great time and those who don’t sulk. Therefore, Reputation Today decided to have a year-end party that is crowd funded. More like a luxury Pronto aimed at senior communicators – both in-house and in consultancies. The price may seem steep but that is almost how much five star hotels charge for a good dinner with drinks and taxes. Also, we wanted to price it at a point that makes it exclusive and premium.
Besides, the encouraging response to the two-city conclaves we got earlier in the year convinced us that we need to have one half-day event in each of the three metros. While two metros had the conclave, the third missed out because of its proximity to that year’s PRAXIS. So, we decided to hold the Super Night in that city. This will move to another metro next year. The Conclaves will take place on April 6th and 20th in Mumbai and Bangalore respectively.
So what does one expect at the Super Night on Thursday, January 19th 2017. It will be a gathering of the Who’s Who of Indian Public Relations and Corporate Communications. It will ideally take place in December but this year the date we chose was clashing with another event and therefore we postponed it to January (on the 19th). We hope to see the leaders of the communications fraternity gathering for this evening. Most of the evening will be informal conversations over cocktails and good food. However, we will have 20 minutes of formality during which time we will have a celebratory address by a corporate CEO for about 15 minutes and the unveiling of the fourth issue of the print magazine. There will be good music and a lot of chatter. This is an evening one should not miss. Register here.
We are also launching the Reputation Today Privilege Card in the new year. And one can enrol for the Privilege Card at the Super Night if the 100 of them do not sell out before that. This idea was born out of feedback we got from regular attendees, who register as individuals that they would like to enjoy similar privileges that delegates from partner companies enjoy. While we do not differentiate, we do offer rooms at the venue hotel on priority to partner companies. However, we will only be able to offer rooms at the venue hotel to partner companies and to Gold and Silver category Privilege Card holders. In other words we are enabling individual professionals to get similar benefits that representatives of partner companies get at no extra cost. All that one needs to do is sign up early.
The base level Bronze Card offers access to Super Night, both Conclaves and to PRAXIS. The Silver Card offers all benefits of the Bronze Card and an accommodation for two nights at the PRAXIS venue hotel in double occupancy. The Gold Card holder gets the benefit of single occupancy for two nights at the venue hotel. All this at a great price of Rs 15,000/- Rs 25,000/- and Rs 35,000/- respectively (if one does a bank transfer or sends a cheque). There will be a nominal convenience fee on the amount if one chooses to pay via Explara. All Privilege Card buyers will get an actual card that will have great badge value.
We hope these offerings help you in planning your learning and networking experience for the year. There’s a lot in store. Because you matter!
