OUR SOLUTION

Given the challenges of drought, along with the uncertainty that the COVID-19 pandemic created, the challenge was to encourage producers to attend and still take advantage of the end of financial year tax benefits.

With COVID-19 causing the event to be cancelled in 2020, it was critical to communicate and reinforce the safety measures the event organisers had put in place to ensure everyone’s safety.

C7EVEN’s key responsibilities were to:

  • PR and Social media campaign to encourage attendance at Elders FarmFest 2021
  • Promotion and showcasing the sales opportunities for site holders
  • Liaise with and coordinate consistent communications activity
  • Deliver clear and strategic communication across all media channels
  • Develop communication that generated physical attendance for the event
  • Manage Elders FarmFest owned channels including website updates and all social media communications
  • Manage and arrange sponsor media opportunities including interviews, video and photography

C7EVEN’s strategy focussed on:

  • Media announcements, short lead, during event and post event media management
  • Social and digital media creation and engagement
  • Major sponsor support
