Big Apple

This marks a return to an in-person event for the awards after the 2020 Big Apple Awards were celebrated as a virtual four-day experience. The event, which will also be livestreamed, honors the Big Apple Award winners and Honorable Mention recipients, the 15 Under 35 Award Winners, and the PRSA-NY Chapter’s Individual Award recipients. PRSA-NY president Andrew Graham said that this year’s awards will showcase “the versatility and effectiveness of PR practitioners during a time of uncertainty and change.” Tickets for the event, as well as registration for the livestream, are available now.


LaVoieHealthScience is supporting the Inaugural BioFuture Conference: Reimagine the Future of Healthcare, which will take place as a live event at Cure by Deerfield in New York on October 5-6 and offer virtual one-to-one meetings (as well as pre-recorded company presentations) on October 7-8. The event will examine such rapidly expanding fields as biopharma, digital medicine, big data, AI, healthcare systems and payors. Online registration will be available until September 30, after which all registrations will be handled on site and will be subject to the applicable onsite fee.
