“We launch this edition under the diversity sign, the one which inspired us in defining our new graphic concept. (…)We consider essential the recognition of the role the concept can have for the progress of the industry, the experience of diversity and its concrete monetization, without which diversity remains just an interesting concept, but hard to approach in the practice of public relations,” said Dana Oancea, board member of the Forum for International Communications.
