We hate saying “no” here in Agri-TechE, but for a number of reasons, we have had to decline promoting third party events.
Please allow us to explain our thinking.
- There are a LOT of events in the UK agri-tech calendar! We are asked to promote many of them through our various channels, and it has become rather unmanageable – we are a small (but energetic!) team and we try to use our time and resource as efficiently as possible (promoting 3rd party events takes longer than you’d think!).
- We also run our own events, and we were risking clogging up our comms feed – sometimes with events that compete with our own, either in terms of content or date).
- Is promoting your event really the best way for us to help support you as an Agri-TecE member? Among the white noise of events (particularly since there have been more online), your unique capacity, capabilities, opportunities and partnerships are likely to be of much more interest to the Agri-TechE network. Do you have any case studies, collaboration opportunities, exciting research, new product launches, awards won? Those are likely to attract more attention and are a potentially higher value use of the communication opportunity.
- Do you know the www.webinag.co.uk site? They have set themselves up – very generously – to curate the UK’s agri-tech events calendar and they would love to hear about your event and help promote it.
(We should just add that we do reserve the right to promote events in which we are involved, either as a media partner or if we have a formal partnership with a particular event. So you may see us put our voice behind the occasional 3rd party event but that’s usually for a specific reason).
Really sorry not to be able to help on this occasion.
