Next 20 Series

Events & content initiative to uncover and understand the opportunities and challenges facing communicators.

About Next 20

Launched in 2020, Next 20 is a major content initiative from PRovoke to truly uncover and understand the opportunities and challenges facing the public relations industry across the world’s geographic markets and sector/practice areas. The plan sees PRovoke bring its formidable editorial approach to bear on analysing the state of the PR industry across the world, with a particular focus on emerging markets in the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific.

In Asia-Pacific, the initiative is spearheaded by PRovoke CEO and editor-in-chief Arun Sudhaman and conducted in collaboration with APACD, the premier organization for in-house comms leaders in the region. The series revolves around small events, either in-person or virtual, across the region’s distinct geographic markets, supplemented by in-depth feature coverage.

Each event and feature brings together APACD members with a specific partner agency, in conjunction with PRovoke’s editorial analysis and curation. The first Asia-Pacific Next 20 series focused on the future of crisis communications in Asia-Pacific.

APACD members are are automatically prioritised to take part in Next 20 events and content. If you’d like to know more, please contact us.
