The 26th International Public Relations Research Symposium (BledCom) will be held on July 4, 5, & 6, 2019 in Rikli Balance Hotel (formerly Hotel Golf) Lake Bled, Slovenia.

What began as an annual gathering of scholars and practitioners in public relations and related disciplines to discuss contemporary communication and management problems has blossomed into what it is today. As the oldest conference in our field that is not affiliated with a professional or academic association, we have come much farther than we had expected in 1994! Read more here.
