PR agency attendance up 31% at SXSW; Weber Shandwick is the new King
After a record year for PR agency attendance at SXSW in 2011, we’re seeing another big year in 2012. Our number crunchers have found a 31% increase in the number of people PR agencies have sent to Austin.
Four of the top five, including Hill and Knowlton and Fleishman Hillard brought more folks to this year’s conference. Last year’s PR King, Edelman upped the ante with an additional 10 people on the ground in Texas.
But that wasn’t enough to keep the crown. This year, with a giant crew of 61, Weber Shandwick takes the crown.
