IPRA and Bulgarian PR agencies reach accord


IPRA, the International Public Relations Association, has signed a co-operation agreement with the Bulgarian Association of PR Agencies (BAPRA). Under the agreement, inter alia, the organisations will exchange materials such as IPRA’s Thought Leadership essays and know-how to help with the development of the PR profession.


I am delighted we start a partnership with IPRA and I believe that this will bring great value to both organisations. It was especially rewarding for me as both a former IPRA President and the current BAPRA Chairwoman to bring about this agreement,” comments Maria Gergova- Bengtsson.


IPRA is working with national PR Associations connecting communications professionals from all over the world into an ecosystem that addresses some of the most complex challenges in the PR industry," explains IPRA President Svetlana Stavreva. “Our co-operation agreement with BAPRA presents an opportunity for Bulgarian PR talent to tap world-class PR know-how, and to collaborate with our Golden World Awards competition. Indeed we have already seen new GWA Bulgarian entries this year taking advantage of their special entry price.”
