As well as publishing Inside Housing and Social Housing magazines, Ocean Media Group (OMG) organises the largest annual event in the UK housing sector: Housing 2017. See Media has worked with OMG to help promote the event since 2014. During that time, despite the tough prevailing economic and housing sector climate, attendance at the event has grown and national media coverage has increased.
The nature of See Media’s relationship with OMG has evolved over the years to now include a full service PR approach, including support developing key messages, writing and delivering a communications plan, liaising with key journalists (trade, local and national) and monitoring impact through a media monitoring service and monthly interactive report. In addition to our work on Housing 2017, See Media has led the key messaging around OMG’s second large-scale event, Homes. Now in its sixth year it is the largest housing event in the south.
I have worked with Stuart personally for over eight years. Both when he edited Inside Housing and more recently as he leads our events PR. Stuart is extremely professional, has a clear understanding of the sector, is great to work with and is extremely respected by colleagues and clients. We struggled for many years to find a PR company that complemented our in-house journalists and See Media has been a perfect fit. I cannot recommend them enough.
