Share Article

PR News will present on June 21, 2012, a one-of-kind, one-day event that will educate PR professionals on how to best leverage PR technologies, tools and services, and also offer enticing food tastings throughout the day. The Taste of Tech, at Sentry in New York City, will be followed by PR News’ Social Media Summit on June 22.

“We’ve heard from communicators that they want a more meaningful decision-making process when it comes to the services and tools they use to move their PR forward,” says Diane Schwartz, senior vice president and group publisher of PR News.

The Taste of Tech will blend technology, case studies, advice and tactics so communicators can make more informed decisions about the day-to-day tools they use for everything from social media and crisis management to media relations and measurement. More than 350 attendees are also expected to partake in a food-tasting extravaganza, with tastings throughout the day instead of a traditional meal format used at most conferences.

Unlike other industry events, PR News’ Taste of Tech on June 21 will shine a day-long spotlight on the leading-edge companies servicing communications pros across a spectrum comprising social media, investor relations, mobile communications, media relations and measurement. The event offers the attending communicators an opportunity to meet with the best service providers and learn how to manage their PR initiatives more effectively with innovative tools and technologies. The following day’s Social Media Summit will then provide PR practitioners with an intensive, one-day immersion in the next practices in digital and social media communications.

"We are very excited to be partnering with PR News on an event and ground-breaking concept that will set a new direction on client-partner relations," notes Fay Shapiro, publisher of

Taste of Tech & Social Media Summit Sponsors include: (Platinum Sponsor) Critical Mention and Burrelles Luce, Business Wire and Dow Jones.

Sponsors will have the opportunity to be on stage throughout the day and share how the audience can benefit from their service. Taste of Tech will be held from 9:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. at a beautiful venue in mid-town Manhattan.
