PRWeek is a trade magazine for the public relations industry. The original UK edition, edited by Danny Rogers, has been in print for 24 years. There is also a US edition, which launched in 1998[1] as well as a German edition. The magazine is published by the UK's largest independent publishing group, Haymarket Media Group.[2] The US edition, which is independent from the UK edition, is published by Haymarket Media.[1] The company has representation in Asia, via Campaign Asia-Pacific magazine.

PRWeek also produces research into the size and shape of the UK public relations industry including the annual ranking of Top 150 PR consultancies and Salary Survey as well as surveys into industry-relevant issues such as staff retention. The PRWeek awards are one of the most influential awards for the communications industry in the US.

In October 2013, the print UK edition of PRWeek changed from a weekly to a monthly edition.[3][4] In September 2016, the UK print edition of PRWeek changed from a monthly to a bi-monthly edition.

Events and Awards[edit]

Each year PRWeek produces a number of events for communications professionals to help bring innovative ideas and fresh thinking to the forefront of the industry.

Following extensive research, high-quality speakers are selected to share groundbreaking insight through a mix of keynote presentations, case study analysis, panel discussions and practical masterclasses. PRWeek's regular conferences include PR360, Strategic Internal Communications and Crisis Communications.

The annual PRWeek UK Awards, known as the 'Oscars' of the industry, celebrate and recognise transformative work across the PR and comms sector.
