MIT Technology Review partnered with BIGfish to successfully increase awareness, achieve press attendance and secure top-tier media coverage of their events.
Conduct strategic, top-tier media outreach for all of MIT Technology Review’s events inviting reporters to attend the conferences and encouraging media to cover relevant news coming out of the events.
BIGfish had a 3-pronged approach: invite reporters to attend MIT Technology Review’s events, facilitate interviews onsite at events, and pitch out news from the conferences to relevant media who were unable to attend.
As a result of BIGfish’s extensive public relations outreach and onsite assistance, MIT Technology Review’s events have obtained a consistently higher media attendance rate with relevant, top-tier media attending including Reuters, Forbes and TechCrunch.
