(Phoenix, AZ).- PROFESSIONAL PUBLIC RELATIONS 101 CONFERENCE (PPR101) is a multi-city national tour that seeks to educate, enlighten and empower tomorrow’s urban trendsetters on increasing exposure via newspapers, magazines, websites and video shows. Panel discussions, power networking, speed media training, and showcase auditions will be offered at this one day seminar at The Embassy Suites Phoenix Airport, Saturday January 30, 2010.


Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with top entertainment journalists, editors, critics, publicists, marketers and television show hosts. Registrants will learn the role of a publicist and what to expect from this service, the costs, etc. From top editors, attendees learn how to get on earn editorial on international websites, television shows and magazines. There is also a controversial panel dubbed industry vs. in the streets, that details professional etiquette in entertainment and how to properly manage a media crisis. (See attached itinerary).

Allhiphop.com’s Steve Raze, Celebrity Publicist ChiQ Simms, Source Magazine’s Carlton Wade and Amy Andrieux, Down Magazine’s Big Hawk, MTV’s Jayson Rodriguez, Sister 2 Sister Magazine’s Erika Boston, and many more will be among the panelists offering advice while taking note of the attending talent pool. The casting director from BET’s Wild Out Wednesday will pick from the PPR 101 showcase contestants to feature on the highly successful video show, 106 & Park. Only 20 PPR 101 conference pre-registrants will be allowed an opportunity to showcase their skills.

In Phoenix, event organizers will also showcase the first PPR 101 Compilation CD. A cooperative endeavor with DJ KSB, Volume one of the compilation will feature some of the best talent who have performed and/or participated in a previously held PPR 101 seminar/showcase. “For many independent artists, we act as their unofficial publicist, via PPR 101. Long after PPR 101 has left their city, we continue to advise many past participants on how to build on their existing momentum. Having music included on the compilation cd affords the artists music reviews by top entertainment journalists and exposure in additional markets, even when they aren’t present. PPR 101 is not just an event; it’s a relationship of results, explains ChiQ Simms, event organizer and celebrity publicist.”

Past PPR 101 showcase winners like Brittany Starr of Dallas, Texas have gone on to New York and Chicago earning a music video and opportunity to work with Twista. Starr took second place at New York’s premiere A&R talent scouting event Blaze the Stage and currently has several major labels bidding for her. Starr hit the BET 106 & Park stage January 28 and won with more than 50% of the vote. Her win landed an opportunity to be heard of the Tom Joyner Morning show and a slot as the opening act for Comedians J Anthony Brown and Sheryl Underwood. New Orleans hiphop rock star of MGG Entertainment, Michael Carlione performed on Bet’106 & Park after participating in PPR 101 inNew Orleans. He later traveled to the Miami event where he landed an editorial opportunity in the Source Magazine and his music posted on Allhiphop.com.

PPR 101 has been hosted In New Orleans, Atlanta, Memphis, Dallas, Las Vegas, The SFO Bay Area, Miami, and Houston with plans in action for Phoenix and Atlanta to open up the New Year. “This is the first event of its kind, Simms continues, to educate aspiring entertainers on how to secure editorial coverage on their talent and/or craft and career altering media exposure opportunities.” Simms has devoted her entire career to securing press for entertainers, causes, politicians and pastors.
