I am overjoyed to share that Ragan Communications has acquired Communications Week, the preeminent event and thought leadership brand for communicators worldwide. This year’s flagship event will take place November 15-19, and I am hoping you and your team will join us. Your role as brand managers, storytellers, messengers and strategists has never been more important and influential — and that is what Communications Week is all about.
We are reimagining Communications Week as a year-round endeavor. The rollout will begin next month with thought-provoking content on the future of communications on Commsweek.com, Ragan.com and PRDaily.com, culminating with a weeklong series in November that will feature conferences, networking events, workshops, webinars and more. Our industry partners will also be hosting events during Communications Week in a combination of virtual and in-person gatherings around the globe. To unite as a community—in the same room, bumping elbows—will be a treat and a feat in and of itself.
This acquisition represents our commitment to a community that for more than 50 years has relied on Ragan for education, connection and inspiration. We are humbled by this opportunity and will be looking to you for ideas and suggestions as we support your efforts to be the best communicators that you can be.
To find out more about Communications Week and our plans, please see the press release on CommsWeek.com, and we hope to see you for a week of connection, learning and celebrating the communications role later this year.
