Holding a press conference in your own meeting room or at your booth?

We strongly encourage you to notify OTC Brasil. We will post this information in the OTC Brasil Press Room to inform the media of your designated meeting areas, press conferences, receptions, or product demonstrations.

Tips for a Successful Press Conference

Please keep in mind that holding a press conference does not guarantee that the media will attend.

  • Be sure your announcement is significant and newsworthy.
  • Target media that would be most interested in your products or services with an invitation to attend your press conference or schedule an interview with a company spokesperson.
  • Make sure that a company spokesperson is available to answer any journalists’ questions.
