Media Relations

Building a rapport with the media is just as important as building one with the public.

Through our professional relationships, IMPRESS helps you reach the news decision-makers with the material they want -- NEWS. The return on your investment comes from valuable earned media exposure.

When your message calls for a press conference, our support ranges from location planning and news releases, to complete hosting or on-site assistance.
