First CommsCon conference sells out

Communications PR conferenceTickets have now sold out for tomorrow’s CommsCon conference. The event, aimed at PR and communications professionals, takes place all day in Sydney.

Just over 200 people will attend the event, which is organised by Mumbrella’s parent company Focal Attractions. Among those organisations to have supported CommsCon have been the Communications Council’s specialist body The PR Council, which is presenting its vision of the future of the industry at the event, and publicists’ bible, Social Diary

Conference curator Cathie McGinn said: “We’re grateful to our committee of advisers from within the industry who have helped develop the agenda and get this off the ground in an extraordinarily short space of time. It demonstrates that there is an appetite for a high level of debate among communications professionals. The fact that we’ve sold out this time round means that we will be putting the ticket price up looking for a larger capacity venue next year.”

The conference will be followed by the CommsCon Awards taking place tomorrow night and presented by Bob Downe. The juries were led by Andy Lark, chief marketing and online officer of CommBank.
