What we do
How we ensure our clients success
We have organised and participated in events such as:
- Christmas in July and other Consumer Media Events
- Grand Designs Live
- Ideal Home Show
- Key Trade Events across the UK
Involvement in such events has allowed us to successfully connect key press, consumers and retailers with our clients, giving brand exposure and fostering enduring relationships.
In addition, we can create individual press events, attracting relevant and influential press. From celebrating a ground-breaking innovation to the introduction of a new product line, PR Direct can shine a national spotlight on your brand. We have worked with fantastic event spaces in London like Ice Tank, Divertimenti Cookery School and the RSA Vaults, tailoring each event to the needs of both brands and their audience.
From national newspapers to online influencers; glossy consumer magazines to retailer orientated trade publications, PR Direct has the knowledge and experience to best present your brand to the right audience.
Whether you’re focused on developing awareness with retailers or looking to influence consumers, PR Direct has the strategy for you.
With Sarah’s background in journalism, the features and comment pieces are professionally written and put together, while any brochure or digital content gets the tone just right.
Are you looking to:
- Expand operations into the UK market?
- Attract consumer attention through B2C communication?
- Present yourself in B2B publications and at UK events?
With current and previous clients from Europe, North America and Asia, we are truly an organisation without international barriers.
Who we work with
Homeware, tabletop and hardware brands
PRD currently works with a number of housewares, tabletop and hardware brands, most of whom either sell through all the different distribution channels or are looking to do so. In some cases this is an area we have been helping our clients with too, suggesting a form of approach and also helping to source sales contacts/distributors where relevant. Our work has included liaison with major department store and online retailers.
We have worked with non-UK organisations extensively – liaising with principles or parent companies based outside of the UK and also those who did not have any UK operation. Our international work has included companies from Portugal, Spain, Italy, the US, France, Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Belgium.
