CIPR joins forces with PressPage to launch newsroom

The CIPR has launched a social media newsroom in partnership with PressPage.

The newsroom goes live today and integrates announcements on our website with our Twitter feed, Facebook and LinkedIn pages, and with the CIPR Conversation.

Phil Morgan, CIPR Policy and Communications Director said:

We are very happy to be using the CIPR's new, integrated newsroom to announce our partnership with PressPage, who are enabling us to make the most of their excellent service. We are looking forward to making the CIPR's announcements and media releases more engaging by being able to include rich digital content and to bring our resources to a wider audience.

Bart Verhulst, Co-founder & CEO of PressPage said:

We are delighted to be associated with the UK's leading Public Relations organisation. The CIPR is at the forefront of key developments in the PR profession, especially the work carried out by their social media panel. Hopefully this partnership will contribute in that direction.

The CIPR is also pleased to confirm that PressPage is offering members of the Institute the chance to utilise this impressive newsroom technology with a considerable discount - contact PressPage for further information.
