Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool

To launch ACC Liverpool’s first ever stand-alone presence at international Confex and to raise its profile amongst target trade media

Mexia Communications was approached at the eleventh hour to assist ACC Liverpool as their existing PR agency had an emergency which meant that we would be without support for our biggest trade show in the UK.  With virtually no notice, Mexia picked up the project and launched into action.  Press release angles were developed and a first release issued on day 1 of Mexia’s appointment to ensure that we didn’t miss out on our target trade publications’ news deadlines to coincide with the show.  Mexia ensured that ACC Liverpool had excellent pre-show coverage which generated significant interest in their activities during Confex amongst primary target audiences.

The Result

Mexia pre-confirmed seven press appointments and a further ten journalists visited the stand, generating coverage in virtually all of ACC Liverpool’s top target trade publications, in addition to creating a PR pipeline of than 20 articles.
