HONG KONG, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PR Newswire announces its partnership with the world's premier business awards, the Stevie® Awards, for its Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards, which are open to all organizations in the 22 nations in the region. By partnering with PR Newswire, the Stevie Awards can leverage the extensiveness of PR Newswire's media distribution network in Asia Pacific to gain regional media coverage and garner more interest from business to participate in one of the world's most coveted prizes.
"We are extremely honored to be partnering with the Stevie Awards for their Asia-Pacific program," said Royce Shih, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of PR Newswire in Asia-Pacific. "The key focus of the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards is on innovation, and that strikes a chord with PR Newswire. Historically, innovation has been strong on paid and owned media, however with the increasing number of people blocking ads and ignoring paid media, PR Newswire and its parent company Cision are driving and infusing innovation into earned media. With the help of technology, the Cision Communications Cloud TM was created to enable communicators to maximize earned media potential and execute a unified multichannel strategy that directly ties to an organization's objective and attribute ROI to earned media."
As the world's largest commercial newswire company, PR Newswire offers robust and comprehensive media distribution network which spans across more than 170 countries in over 40 languages, covering more than 300,000 media outlets. The breadth and depth of our network enable companies to tell their stories to target audiences and engage meaningful conversations with them.
There are more than 10 public relations awards categories in the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards and besides supporting the event with news release distribution, PR Newswire is also sponsoring the Stevie-winning companies for "Most Innovative Public Relations Agency of the Year ", "Most Innovative Communications Team of the Year" and "Award for Innovation in Media Relations", with one complimentary news release distribution for winners to announce and share their winning stories.
The winners for the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards have been announced on April 19. Winners will be celebrated and presented their awards during a gala banquet on June 2 in Tokyo, Japan.
