Tips for a Successful Press Conference

Please keep in mind that holding a press conference does not guarantee that the media will attend.

  • Be sure your announcement is significant and newsworthy.
  • Target media that would be most interested in your products or services with an invitation to attend your press conference or schedule an interview with a company spokesperson.
  • Make sure that a company spokesperson is available to answer any journalists’ questions.
