Marketing & Public Relations

Websites & Social Media
Disability Action will have a dedicated website for the exhibition and will we will also use our social media channels to promote the event.  All exhibitors will be listed on the website and individually announced on both our Twitter and Disability Exhibition page. Please follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook to keep up-to-date and share news.

Disability Action has a large e-zine mailing list.  Designated e-zines will be sent out to our database on a monthly basis updating them of new exhibitors and the latest news.

Public Relations
As well as all the advertising we will be running a PR campaign in the run up to the exhibition.  This is where you can really help!

We need to hear about any interesting, new or unusual products or services that your company will be exhibiting at the exhibition.  Having an exciting product that we can demonstrate to the media will help us achieve a higher level of press coverage.  It will also help get PR for your product.  If you have a product that you think would be suitable please email [email protected]

As well as targeting the regional papers in Northern Ireland from the start of May we will also be targeting the national papers, radio and TV in the two weeks before the event.
