People tend to zero in on media relations and social media when they think about public relations, but there are so many other ways to engage and connect with audiences. Corporate events, in particular, can turn a good campaign into a great one by creating authentic, direct touch points for audiences to interact with your brand. VIP events, news conferences, grand openings, company banquets, trade shows and even staged events create truly memorable experiences for attendees, as well as those who don’t get to experience it first-hand (thanks to live-streaming technology, social media and video).
Here’s a quick look at a few of the ways LPR and our clients have leveraged the power of corporate events to drive community relations, media relations and internal communications results the past few months.
