Making your mark at B2B exhibitions involves more than just setting up your stand and hoping for the best. It requires careful planning, effective communication, and genuine connections. To truly make the most of these events, businesses are turning to specialist B2B PR agencies for show support. Here’s why:


  • Setting the Stage

At the heart of successful B2B exhibitions lies meticulous planning, with pre-show content playing a huge role. From writing show previews, to managing sponsored social media campaigns, our goal is to build anticipation among your audience and highlight your key products, themes and messages.

  • Engaging with the Media

B2B exhibitions offer a prime opportunity to connect with journalists and industry influencers all under one roof. A PR agency will help your brand to nurture relationships with key media contacts to ensure targeted messaging reaches the intended audience. From securing pre-event coverage to arranging on-site interviews and live social media posts, PR is essential for maximising media and online exposure.

  • Post-Event Follow-Up

Following up with journalists and pushing testimonials and insights gleaned from the show, post-event PR and communications is the crucial last step. Integrating PR into your overall post-show marketing efforts allows businesses to refine their strategies for future exhibitions, paving the way for ongoing growth and success. And celebrating the event on social media provides interesting content and the opportunity to continue engage around popular hashtags and industry topics.
