C7EVEN was engaged by Nutrien to assist with the PR implementation and media management for the 2020 Nutrien Classic in Tamworth NSW.

Generating more than $7.65 million in horse sales and over $370,000 worth of prizes across 11 event categories, the Nutrien Classic has gone from strength the strength even in recent difficult rural conditions.

The goal of the PR support campaign was to maximise event awareness and profile, competition entries, and horse registrations though the generation of media outcomes and coverage in the lead-up, during and post event. While also assisting in updating The Classic Sponsorship Prospectus.

The Nutrien Classic was also streamed online via Nutrien Equine and achieved 575,999 total international views spanning across 6 countries, increasing on 2019 numbers by 84,528 views.

Building on C7EVEN’s 2019 PR campaign, a three-phase strategy was developed to generate maximum event awareness and profile exposure through media outcomes and coverage.

The strategy focussed on:

Phase 1 – PRE-EVENT

This phase consisted of developing a PR strategy as well as media kits and supporting materials. Whilst also managing media announcements and updates.

Phase 2 – EVENT

This phase included the management of the media centre as well as all interviews, photos and video content required for media use. While also monitoring and managing media announcements and updates.

Phase 3 – POST-EVENT

To conclude the campaign C7EVEN generated an event wrap-up media announcement as well as reporting of the event results.
