PR Showcase Commences Direct Marketing Campaign Integrating Online PR


The promotion has started in earnest for Britain’s biggest PR event, PR Showcase http://www.prshowcase.net, which takes place in Kensington Town Hall on the 23 and24 September 2003.
The event offers a unique mixture of workshops, conferences, exhibitions, displays and an unbeatable networking opportunity. The event is aimed at all professionals in the PR and marketing disciplines on both the agency and the client side. The organisers are hoping to attract more than 2,000 high quality visitors over the two days.
The direct marketing campaign which has been designed in-house at Evensis http://www.evensis.com, consists of more than 150,000 pieces, a mixture of inserts and mail, being mailed throughout August and September 2003.
Richard Weston, Managing Director of Evensis explains, “The most effective way of reaching this audience we find is direct mail, using channels of distribution via publications such as PR Week http://www.prweek.co.uk and Marketing http://www.brandrepublic.com, Press Gazette http://www.pressgazette.co.uk and also subscribers to DiaryD http://www.diaryd.com. In addition to this we are placing inserts in resources and publications that the target audience use such as the Hollis titles. We are confident of generating a huge increase in delegate numbers.”
Weston adds, “We also have integrated a major online PR programme which is a first for Evensis, consisting of forum and newsgroup activity, which will drive people to the website, http://www.prshowcase.net.”
