And don't forget to add your IWCE booth number so media attending the event can find you.

Once your news announcement is complete, send it to key media outlets/journalists. Here are some important tips:

- Make sure someone in your booth is appointed to speak with press and that everyone in your booth knows of this individual's designation
Get additional coverage for your press releases by submitting it to IWCE's Urgent Communications Editor, Donny Jackson for review. Signed up for IWCE's Exhibits Plus program? Simply login to the exhibitor console and upload your press releases to your online exhibitor listing. Don't forget to add the news announcement to your company website to showcase your news to your customers, prospects and media.
A pitch letter should be used when contacting news outlets/journalists. The pitch letter should have a news angle of interest to the news outlet. The letter should be short and concise. It is where you “sell” your story idea to the journalist. You must show the journalist what makes your news unique and why they should cover your announcement. In this letter don't forget to offer them a visual image (if you have one), a conversation with a company spokesperson and always include your contact information for an easy reply.
