6. Publicity & Promotion
In order to attract more visitors to attend the fair, the HKTDC will co-ordinate a territory-wide publicity campaign to draw maximum public attention and at the same time to create advance publicity for the exhibitors. The campaign will incorporate every conceivable medium, including :
– advertisements in major local magazines and newspapers; – press releases; – press conference; – newspaper/magazine supplements; – special radio interviews; – radio commercials; – posters; – lamp-post buntings; – outdoor advertising, etc.
6.1. Co-operative Advertising Scheme (Free of Charge) If you are advertising your products in local mass media before and / or during the fair period, we would like to introduce to you a CO-OPERATIVE ADVERTISING SCHEME which helps to increase the consumers’ awareness of your company’s participation in this fair and the event itself.
We have tag-on banners for your print advertisements in newspapers and magazines. We have prepared four different shapes of these tag-on banners and you can choose any one shape or more to fit your own advertisements. Please refer to Form 16 in “Additional Facilities and Services Order Form Booklet”.
6.2. Free Publicity Arrangement Exhibitors are encouraged to promote their companies or products by supplying around 30 sets of press kits (including press release and photos) to the "Media Centre" on the first day of the fair. International and local media can freely collect materials available there for their reference and use. This service is free of charge for exhibitors.
Whether your materials will be picked up for publishing is totally at the media’s discretion. All submitted materials will not be returned.
Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact Ms. Nadasa Chan at tel: (852) 2240 4570, fax: (852) 2169 9523 or email: [email protected]
6.3. Submission of Product Information (Free of Charge) Exhibitors are encouraged to submit product information for pre-fair publicity. What we need from you is just some information on hand-picked products you wish to promote at the Fair. For instance, a brief description on the special features of the products or a photo with an eyecatching caption will suffice for press releases. Our Publicity Department will consolidate your contributions and then make use of the materials to promote the Fair as a whole.
In order to optimise our resources, the HKTDC can only accept products, which will be displayed at the Fair, and has absolute discretion in the selection of products to be published.
Please complete the Form 21 in “Additional Facilities and Services Order Form Booklet” and return it together with related product catalogues/photos if you wish to benefit from this valuable and FREE publicity campaign. All replies should reach HKTDC before 30 June 2010.
