Manchester-based integrated marketing agency, Conker Communications, has been ‘called up’ by Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 to handle the public relations activity for this prestigious international sporting event.
Conker has been appointed to handle sports and lifestyle PR and media relations for the flagship sporting spectacle, which features netball’s finest. Elite players from 16 international teams will be competing for the coveted Vitality Netball World Cup (VNWC2019) trophy at the Echo Arena Liverpool next summer (July 12-21, 2019).
Commenting on the account win, Conker’s founder and managing director Sarah Wallwork said: “We’re delighted to have been selected as communications partner for such a premier international event, hosted on home turf here in the North West.
“In the run up to the tournament we’re tasked with developing a cohesive media relations programme that combines milestone related activities with an ‘always-on’ news programme to capitalise on the netball fever that’s gripping the nation, since the England Roses’ Commonwealth Games victory earlier this year.’’
Lindsay Impett, Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 Event Director, observed: “We chose Conker in a competitive pitch process. They were the clear fit for the campaign, with strong media knowledge and national contacts, backed by real creativity and their genuine enthusiasm for the project shines through.
"Conker’s PR activities are designed to draw on the considerable excitement and anticipation that’s running throughout the world of netball as we’re poised to enter a World Cup year. We’re delighted to be working with the Conker team for this stand-out sporting event.”
