Havas PR will host a Trendspotting in the Last 15 Years panel at SXSW on Thursday, March 15, and we’d love to see you there. Panelists include Ryan Berger, partner at influencer marketing group HYPR, Joy Peabody, director of global consumer engagement for the Estée Lauder Companies, and Shannelle Armstrong, founder and chief stylist at Haute & Co Bridal.
In 2017, Havas PR saw a massive opportunity to go way beyond the old practice of merely pitching existing news. Instead, we crafted the news. That meant spotting trends and keeping up with what was developing in pop culture, then using those insights to put out routine news in more compelling ways, create opportunities and coattail on relevant breaking news. We do this both for our clients and our agency.
