Yanina Dubeykovskaya, Founder and Content Director of the World Communication Forum and President of the WCFA association: “We understand the importance of the idea of the global communication industry. But this global industry needs its global history, which should be written with the deep understanding of the diversity of the world. Although the global communication industry started in the USA, nowadays there is a huge diversification of the communication development models worldwide. Those diverse models will be represented at our Event. The Event is aimed to organize the global community with the USA as the leader and founder of the industry and at the same time with the possibility of the unique local expertise from around the world. Therefore we plan to bring the WCFA global communication community to the USA”.
