About CIPR Academic Conference


The annual CIPR Academic Conference is designed to bring PR academia and practice together to discuss important and topical issues for the sector as a whole and to share and develop ideas either may have in any area of public relations and communication management.

As the PR profession matures, there is more debate about responsibility and the ethics we as an industry adopt. The third conference will bring together academics and practitioners to discuss these broad themes as well as focussing on issues within them such as how new media is used and inclusivity.

The two-day conference will take place on the 9 and 10 of July 2007 at the CIPR headquarters.

The CIPRís annual academic conferences are named after, who sadly passed away in the autumn of 2004. Alan joined the CIPR in March 2001 as the Head of Education and, during the short time he was with us, laid the foundations for much of the work we now undertake in training and education. He developed many of the relationships with other bodies that are still in place today.

His commitment to the sector and, particularly the relationship between academia and practice, cannot be underestimated. It is only fitting that in recognition of Alanís work and commitment to the sector, the CIPR academic conferences that he instigated are named after him.
