We are looking for people to join this event as an opportunity to wish for the victory of the local Hokkaido professional baseball team, the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters, and to use public relations to find friends who can enjoy the development of the region.
I hear people complain that compared to other industries, there are fewer people in public relations who can feel free to talk to them, such as not having as many people as other departments and not having a boss who can teach them. Through this event, we hope that
participating businesses will have more opportunities to share know-how, make friends with whom they can discuss their concerns, and put more PR into practice in their business activities.
