The 10th International Conference on PR in Iran

Integrated Public Relations

13-14 January 2014, Tehran

 

Appreciation

We truly thank God for holding the first and biggest event in public relations in Iran (2004); an event which originated many other events in different fields of PR in Iran, and gathered more than hundreds of PR practitioners, managers and enthusiasts and created an opportunity to share their experience.

More than 300 PR experts, professors and practitioners from in and outside the country shared their experience with the audiences to be a milestone for Iran’s PR which is still trapped in subjective and conservative practices.

The 2nd Global Congress for Muslim PR Practitioners, held on 8-10 Dec. 2012 with more than 1200 attendees, is a positive response to a trust which is the main capital for this major event organizers.

We thank you for your support and trust and apologize for shortcomings. We hope to take another step forward with your support.

 

A golden opportunity to practice “integrated public relations”

Research results show that designing communication models in public relations is highly dependent on “advertising” and apart from a limited attention to other tactics such as “media relations”, other elements and tools have hardly been used.

Integrated public relations is used in PR strategic management and communication planning in order to integrate every activity of an organization related to its audience and stakeholders so that the activities be in line with the pre-determined objectives.

“Integrated public relations” has the two following features:

1. Proper use of communication tools, components, media and tactics

2. Integration of messaging and various functions of communication: conveying and receiving messages to create a unitary concept in audience. In other words, conveying a single image and voice through all communication functions.

Therefore, in order to coordinate and align all PR activities in each point of contact with audience toward a single goal, we use the concept of integrated public relations. This is an approach to leading and integration of planning, implementation and monitoring of messages.
