You can stay up to date as it happens with key news releases for events, products, and all things PwC.

  • Why is some content showcased in an All Media Panel that appears over the page while clicking other content takes me to a new page?
  • For each story in the PwC Global press room, we've chosen the best option to showcase the information and multimedia content within it. Usually, stories with a lot of information (supporting text, multilingual press releases, supporting documents, etc.) are shown on their own page so that you can get a full and detailed view of what is available. Stories that consist of mostly multimedia content are better displayed in the All Media Panel.
  • I am interested in a piece of content in the PwC Global press room. What are some of the ways that I can fully experience it?
  • When the All Media Panel showcases a piece of content, it offers you a full range of viewing options, complete with a full screen option and a slideshow capability for images. You can even move your mouse over the player window to browse through related content in different types of media.
