In 2012….I hope the kindness you’ve given to others returns many times to you.
May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,
The foresight to know where you’re going,
And the insight to know when you’re going too far.
May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart’s possessing,
And may the New Year bring you and yours many blessings.
Happy New Year!

Judy Viitanen enjoyed a great evening of business and networking (and lots of fun) last night at the Park Lane Hotel – celebrating OTC Bulletin’s prestigious OTC Marketing Awards, which recognise the achievements of the British OTC industry.  

These unique Awards focus exclusively and entirely on suppliers of OTC products – non-prescription medicines, food supplements and selected unlicensed healthcare products – in both pharmacy and grocery. Judy was on the judging panel for the Best PR Campaign for a Non-Medicine.

It’s always a pleasure to join clients, friends and colleagues in celebrating and recognising the achievements of excellent brands, campaigns and retailers. PRimage congratulate all the winners – and especially Boots, who won the CCA-sponsored award for the Best OTC Multiple Retailer of the Year.

The celebrity compere Dara O’Briain was brilliant!

The business value of trade shows

Friday, March 4th, 2011

At PRimage we are great fans of trade shows: if used strategically they can prove to be great value for our healthcare clients in the UK and the US.  

Aside from the opportunities for selling, reinforcing existing business relationships, gaining new clients and contracts and launching new products; exhibitions and trade shows also offer companies the benefit of learning and understanding more about the latest trends in their industry, and crucially to gain knowledge about their competitors.

So, we are interested at the findings of a new piece of research from PricewaterhouseCoopers which shows that trade seminars, face to face business meetings and the like have pumped nearly $1 trillion into the American economy. Cumulatively, these events created 1.7m jobs!

PRimage VIP Events: The 5 ‘musts’ for successful event planning

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

Our years of experience in organising successful and impactful client events has made PRimage pretty sassy in understanding what’s needed for successful pre and post planning.

Before planning your event or meeting, Judy Viitanen and the team advise that you focus on these 5 core points:

1.    Why are we meeting;
2.    What do we want to accomplish;
3.    Who’s coming;
4.    Where are we going;
5.    When will we meet?

Knowing the answers to these questions will help you get off to a good start!

More Tips:

Always ensure a thorough venue site visit before you book. Be sure to inspect the function rooms and amenities.  See if you can meet key staff while you’re there, including the sales manager or Meeting Director.

Become familiar your chosen venue’s facilities and the capabilities of its staff. And choose a venue partner you can trust to guide your decisions accordingly.

Be clear whether spouses and children are welcome at your meeting or event. If they are invited to join in the occasion, be sure to have activities for them and extra rooms lined up.

One week before your event, confirm your meeting schedule, number of attendees, room set-up, AV needs, meal and reception schedules, travel logistics and overnight accommodation requirements.

Don’t underestimate the importance of attractive and informative event and meeting literature and marketing collateral. Clearly organized, well-designed folders, programmes, binders, directional signs and ID badges reinforce the importance of the meeting.

Take a break

It’s also crucial to keep attendees’ attention at meetings. We have discovered the useful tip of developing themes for meeting breaks. A morning break, for instance, could be a health break, with healthy snacks and a stretching session led by a professional.  In our experience, meetings and seminar should not go longer than 2 hours without a break, or attendees will get restless, or worse still bored!

Location, location – and timing is everything!

This is crucial. Consider a few key points when choosing your event location: geography, accessibility for attendees, budget, amenities, facilities and nearby attractions. After all, you want attendees to enjoy themselves at your meeting, and travel with relative ease.

Logistics and robust schedules are vital. Determine the arrival time for most of your guests so you, as event co-ordinator and the venue staff are properly prepared. If you’re inviting speakers to your meeting, ask them if they have a preference for room set-up. Some may prefer theatre seating; some may like roundtable. It depends on what they have to say and how they like to say it.
