Before the show

Email journalists a pitch highlighting your latest achievements or upcoming projects. Prepare a media kit or press release, include  photos, technical/product/designer descriptions, contact details and pricing if necessary.

During the show

You can find media reps, journalists and photographers at press conferences and media events, check the MYS website under "media" to learn more. If you give an interview or comment, find out where it will be published and exchange contact details so the journalist can reach you if they need any further information.


Publish on your company blog, website or newsletter key takeaways from your time at the show.

❌ Don't: chase down media or journalists. Articles may depend on comments from up to 30 people, liaising with editors, photographers, social media teams, and all in different time zones.

✔️ Do: say 'thank you' . Writers spend a lot of time researching, drafting, editing, reformatting and distributing media through various channels.  "I remember every exhibitor who says thank you, and I remember every exhibitor who doesn't" Rebecca Whitlocke
