Washington, DC - Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide has been named the title sponsor of the 2nd World Non-Profit and Social Marketing Conference. The World Conference, to be held in Dublin, Ireland, on April 11-12, 2011, will focus on applying strategic communications, marketing and behavior change methodology to solve key social challenges across the globe. The conference will bring together experts in social marketing, the behavioral sciences, strategic communications, health promotion, community engagement, policy development and advocacy.

Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide, a global, multi-disciplinary communications leader operating in more than 70 markets worldwide, has been in the forefront of helping clients, including government agencies, foundations, and businesses, apply social marketing solutions to health, safety and social issues for more than two decades.

“This is shaping up to be a groundbreaking conference,” observed Robert Enefer, Managing Director of the conference organizers, The Conference People. “The line-up of speakers is truly world class and, with the support of Ogilvy Public Relations, we’re looking to produce a spectacular event for all attendees. The partnership with Ogilvy underlines the status of the World Non-Profit and Social Marketing Conference as the leading conference in the social marketing world.”

In addition to keynote speakers, workshops and poster sessions, the World Conference will host an exhibition that provides for sharing examples of social marketing interventions and the impact and learning that they produced. The first World Conference in Brighton, UK in 2008 attracted over 800 delegates from across the globe. The 2011 conference is expected to add to the number and diversity of delegates, including government officials, policy think tanks and advocacy and charitable organizations.

“Ogilvy Public Relations is tremendously honored to support this pioneering conference,” said Tom Beall, Managing Director of Ogilvy’s Global Social Marketing Practice. “The Conference will convene at a critical time as more leaders in the public and private sectors across the world recognize the benefits of applying social marketing techniques to addressing vital social and health issues,” Beall concluded.
