Promotions for Generation Y will kick-off on Saturday, April 4 with teasers advertising the name and date of the event. We believe that this approach is very effective as it will keep persons guessing and anxiously lying in wait for further information.
A combination of PR tactics that will be employed in the months and weeks leading up to the event will be used to provide publicity and public information include and are not limited to:
A radio partnership with ZIP FM (leading Youth Oriented Station) will be arranged to provide promotional suppor t for the competition via mentions, inter views and extended coverage of the competition activities, as well as an outside broadcast from the finals.
A television partner would be required to provide live/ delayed coverage of the event as well as other promotional support , such as inter views and features.
Both youth magazines, Youthlink and Teenage will be approached to provide extensive print coverage on the event, providing features on sponsors, performers and photo highlights of the event.
Pre releases to be circulated to all media with details of the, sponsors' participations as well as inviting the high school students to attend will be generated. Post releases announcing event details will also be disseminated.
Radio and Television inter views will also be coordinated with, sponsors and event coordinators leading up to the event, with the same along with post event highlights on television stations.
A special promotion can be developed surrounding the title/major sponsor's product, where footage from the event can be used to endorse the product i.e. feature in a commercial/ campaign etc.
