Photos from the 2017 Valley Publicity Summit — see you in 2018!

The 14th annual Valley Publicity Summit. presented by SPJ, is now the stuff of communications history (well, at least we would like to think so). Our thanks to:

  • Barrett, the Honors College, at Arizona State University in Tempe, Mark Jacobs, Ph.D., dean and university vice provost, for once again being host to “the best Saturday morning in PR-media relations.”
  • R&R Partners, and Matt Silverman, for once again sponsoring our event as they have several times before.
  • Phoenix PR Pros, the indispensable Facebook group of PR and media professionals, for allowing us to promote the event there.
  • The ASU chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, for providing student volunteers to take care of multiple tasks at the event.

And sincere thanks to our photographer, Bill Pedene, who took a large number of pictures of the event and has posted them on his Smugmug site. Please take a look and relive memories of the 2017 Summit.

Until then, we’re already planning for the 2018 event on Saturday, Sept.. 15, at Honors Hall at Barrett, the Honors College, at the southwest corner of Rural Road and Lemon Street on the Tempe campus of Arizona State University.. Stay tuned to this website for information, details and updates.
