If you cannot be at the event, we'll assign a professional publicist who can be there during the event for you. They are seasoned pros, who in a 15 minute phone training will get the newsworthy aspect of your product. They'll set up your table, pitch the press who attend, take notes and report back to you on the opportunities which arise for your brand.
Hire A Publicist for 20 Hours of Pitching
If an exhibitor cannot attend the event in person, they can hire one of our seasoned publicists to man the table, pitch the press about your brand and then provide (20) hours of follow-up pitching after the event to provide placement for you. All that's required is a 15 minute brand download and they'll easily catch what is newsworthy to pitch to the press about your brand.
