Two important IPRN events in 2019 contributed to this success with the highest member attendance ever; the AGM & Conference in Warsaw in May and the European Regional meeting in London in November. In Warsaw IPRN had the honor to count with the President of Poland as a special guest and expert communicator for the annual gala dinner and prize giving ceremony.
Excellent projects and best practices in various parts of the world with good panel discussions offered great insights and knowledge transfer as the best way for members and their clients to succeed in national and international projects in local markets.
IPRN continues dedicated to offering unequalled opportunities for the advancement of knowledge through the exchange of information and experiences between owners and senior directors of independent PR agencies throughout the world with the organization and design of exclusive activities.

The combined fee of IPRN members exceeds 500 million $ and 7.000 staff in more than 40 countries and 51 communication agencies, providing local knowledge and global reach for all clients looking for selective market PR programs.
