The Summit

 

PRAXIS is an acronym for the Public Relations And Corporate Communications India Summit. It is the world's largest festival of Reputation Management professionals (also know as Public Relations practitioners). The summit was born in November 2012 and travels to different cities annually. The organisers who comprise a dozen volunteers from different organisations do not repeat venues, speakers, bands and the menu.

The purpose of PRAXIS is to offer the fraternity a platform to gather, to learn, to share and to engage. In Latin, PRAXIS means 'to act' or 'to do'. During the two day summit over 500 professionals travel mainly from the three major metros to listen to speakers from India and overseas who share insights on a theme. A live music performance on the first night and the Fulcrum Awards, post PRAXIS on the second night make the experience lively.

The summit is supported by the leading PR firms based in India and is affordable to those who plan well in advance to attend. Participants include senior communications directors, CEOs of PR firms, middle management - both from consulting firms and in-house as well as representatives from support companies. The conference ensures that the audience stays in one or two official hotels which ensures bonding and time to connect. Reputation Today magazine was born at PRAXIS.
