In-Person Meet the Press Events
The premier matchmaking event for products and press, Consumer Product Events is the brainchild of a 30-year product publicist veteran who shares her little black book of contacts with fellow PR agencies, in-house marketers and entrepreneurs. Like a trade show,but instead of meeting buyers, brands are introduced to reporters, influencers, bloggers, producers and special guests such as product scouts and brokers for retailers, e-tailers, directTV producers and affiliate networks. Brands meet more than 50 people face-to-face in one day, are included in a press release on PRNewsWire and get direct access to a list of more than 200 contacts to do your own PR without hiring an expensive PR agency.
