A phased year-long PR & Marketing campaign will maximise awareness of the Growth Investor Awards and build momentum up to and beyond the awards ceremony. Designed around the announcement of finalists and winners, and supported by a high profile and influential Advisory Board, PR content will be distributed to industry and national media and coordinated with over 50 affiliate partners – with press releases created for sponsors to adapt for each key stage of the campaign. The halo of celebration and recognition at the prestigious ceremony creates the perfect atmosphere for developing business relationships – providing sponsors with an opportunity to host key clients and prospects with invitations and seating plans facilitated by the organiser.
