It’s only 8 weeks until Seawork International, the ‘go to’ event for the commercial marine and workboat market.  So, if your organisation is exhibiting, now is the time to work out how you are going to make a splash in the press.  Seawork benefits from a number of media supporters, providing you with a great opportunity to get press coverage in and around show.  Make sure to:

  1. Draw up a press list of magazines and websites in which you’d like your company to appear in
  2. Research the contact details of the news contacts (top tip: get a name not a generic email address)
  3. Find out the submission deadlines.

Here are some quick wins for you, but act now, as some of the deadlines are fast approaching:

Maritime Journal (June issue): The June bumper issue provides organisations with the perfect opportunity to showcase their latest developments.  Keep in mind the deadline which is the 12th May – more information can be found here, including where to submit your ideas/articles.

Hydro International (May/June issue): Any news needs to be submitted to the Editor by the 9th May.  Click here  to email the Editor.

You may also find it useful to know who is planning on attending the event.  Contact the press office  2 weeks before the show to request a list of journalists.
